Bring Back Trans Rights in Healthcare

The Trump Administration has erased Civil Rights protections for transgender patients in healthcare. There was a rule finalized on Friday that no longer recognizes gender identity as an avenue for sex based discrimination. This means that healthcare and insurance companies can simply refuse service with no reason except for the patient being transgender. This is only the beginning. According to the New York Times, it is "part of a broad Trump administration effort across multiple areas of policy — including education, housing, and employment, as well as health care — to narrow the legal definition of sex discrimination so that it does not include protections for transgender people." As a young trans man in the United States myself, this is absolutely terrifying, especially taking into consideration that Trump is still eligible for another 4 year term.
