“NCLR applauds the Department of Health & Human Services for rescinding the most harmful aspects of the Trump-era denial-of-care rule, which would have allowed virtually anyone in the health care system to refuse care to a patient for religious reasons. The revised rule issued today is premised on the recognition that a proper balance must be struck between respecting conscience and ensuring that people get the health care they need. Given the continued prevalence of discrimination in health care faced by LGBTQ people, this new rule is a welcome development that will help protect our community.” – NCLR’s Federal Policy Director Julianna Gonen
