Make it Mandatory for Doctors to Treat Transgender Patients

This petition had 106 supporters

Despite President Barack Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Act, federal judge of Texas Reed O’Connor has ruled that it is legal for doctors to refuse to treat transgender people and women who have had abortions under the guise of “religious freedom,” even though the ACA prohibits discrimination based on sex. This petition aims to directly oppose the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as long as it uses the excuse of religion to ostracize the LGBT+ community and women; Reed O’Connor is directly refuting the supreme court with this ruling and it has to be brought to attention through direct action. We want to make it mandatory for doctors to treat all women and all members of the LGBT+ community, regardless of religious beliefs.
