The Trump-Pence administration just launched an all-out assault on LGBTQ people, women, and other minority communities by unleashing a sweeping license to discriminate.
Under the executive order an employer could refuse to provide health insurance coverage for any of these services citing religious belief or “conscience.” Human Rights Campaign is deeply concerned that employers will feel entitled to refuse coverage for:
This blatant attempt to further Donald Trump's cynical and hateful agenda will enable systematic, government-wide discrimination that will have a devastating impact on LGBTQ people and their families. Donald Trump and Mike Pence have proven they will stop at nothing to target the LGBTQ community and drag our nation backwards.
But we will fight them every step of the way.
It’s unconscionable that the Trump-Pence administration also encouraged employers to exert control over the essential health care decisions of their employees. The rule change on contraception will undoubtedly limit access to vitally important care that women and so many in the LGBTQ community rely on every day.
We each deserve to have the freedom to live and plan our lives with dignity, and this administration’s reckless efforts to undermine the health care of millions of Americans must be stopped. Join with Human Rights Campaign in opposing this disastrous, discriminatory act!
