Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Cardinals Cupich, Dolan blast HHS plan to require transgender procedures over religious objections”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Two of America’s most prominent Roman Catholic leaders — Chicago’s Cardinal Blase Cupich and New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan — said Tuesday that a Biden administration proposal to require Catholic hospitals to perform “gender transition” procedures threatens health care received by 1 in 7 Americans at those facilities.

In an op-ed published Tuesday in America magazine, a Jesuit publication, the cardinals said all patients at Catholic hospitals including those “who identify as transgender … receive the same treatment as any other patient.”

They added that “if health care facilities are to be places where the twin pillars of faith and science stand together, then these facilities and their workers must not be coerced by the government to violate their consciences.”

The Department of Health and Human Services said in July it would seek to force health care providers to perform abortions and transgender procedures regardless of religious beliefs in a “notice of proposed rulemaking” to interpret Section 1557 of the 2010 Affordable Care Act as banning “discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Cardinals Cupich and Dolan said the HHS proposal would brand as discriminatory a health care facility or worker who objects “to performing gender transition procedures, regardless of whether that objection is a matter of sincerely held religious belief or clinical judgment,” calling it “government coercion that intrudes on … religious freedom.”
