The federal government will no longer be able to force a Catholic medical group to perform abortions or gender affirming surgery, according to a ruling made in August. 26 in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Franciscan Alliance (FA) were being forced to perform abortions and mutilate small children with surgeries by the American Civil Liberties Union and the federal government.
Natural News reported:
In Franciscan Alliance v. Becerra, the federal court ruled in favor of a permanent injunction against enforcement of Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act – more popularly known as the Obamacare Act. Section 1557 “defined sex discrimination to include discrimination based on ‘termination of pregnancy’ and ‘gender identity,” it noted.
Moreover, the federal magistrates rebuked the ACLU for trying to stop an injunction against future attempts to force FA into committing infanticide or medical violence under the guise of “gender-affirming care.”
“It is always true that the government’s interest may subtly evolve over time. If that hypothetical chance is enough to defeat standing, then plaintiffs could never obtain injunctive relief to prevent future violations of the free speech clause, the equal protection clause or any other lawsuit where means/ends scrutiny is involved,” the judges wrote in their opinion.
The ACLU had previously tried to force another chain of Catholic hospitals to perform abortions but failed too in 2015 – the recent ruling for FA marks the end of a six-year legal battle and Becket Law, a religious freedom nonprofit who represented FA, celebrated the outcome.
“This ruling is a major victory for conscience rights and compassionate medical care in America,” counsel Joseph Davis said in a press release. “Doctors cannot do their jobs and comply with the Hippocratic Oath if the government requires them to perform harmful, irreversible procedures against their conscience and medical expertise.”
Doctors are also warning about the worrying trend of putting children through gender affirming surgeries, including chemically castrating them – which is more degeneracy from the LGBT community to indoctrinate children into their perverted club – and the Biden administration is right behind it.
The situation is becoming so bad, some doctors have said that it is causing a public health crisis.
President of the American College of Pediatrics, Dr. Quentin Van Meter has been vocal about how pushing children into changing their gender and forcing puberty blockers is “child abuse,” and nothing more than surgical mutilation.
“If you are interrupting that with clearly the intent of never having it go the direction that nature intended, with biological males ending up as adult males and biological females ending up as an adult female, if you interrupt that, you are basically setting up a disease state,” Van Meter said in 2021.
“On top of that, the purpose is clearly in the vast majority of kids that get on puberty blockers, they will not be allowed to go through their own natural puberty. They will be held back and then given cross-sex hormones.”
