The Trump administration appears poised to roll back ObamaCare’s anti-discrimination protections for transgender patients, a move that has activist groups girding for a fight.

A proposed rule from the Department of Health and Human Services is expected to be released in the coming weeks or months that opponents say would make it easier for doctors and hospitals to deny treatment to transgender patients and women who have had abortions.

The proposed rule is expected to roll back a controversial anti-discrimination provision buried within ObamaCare.

From the same people that brought us Nazis rioting in the streets of Virginia today.

Thankfully (and Surprisingly) NJ Governor Chris Christie signed the transgender health bill last month (coincidently on my birthday), but I do travel in the deep south and this is worrisome. I'm concerned with how negatively this will affect a lot of us if they don't live in a protected state. If it's only a rollback for religious exemption, I don't think the exemptions will affect insurance through Obamacare, but if it does, then it means the lose of covered transgender care unless you are protected by state law.
