Support North Dakota’s suit against the dangerous transgender mandate
The State of North Dakota, along with several other institutions (The Sisters of Mercy, the University of Mary, and SMP Health System), recently filed suit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over a dangerous transgender regulation which would force medical practitioners to provide gender-transition treatments to children.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of these institutions by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, will have significant ramifications for the freedom of medical practitioners in North Dakota and across the United States.
Please sign this petition to support North Dakota in their fight against the dangerous HHS transgender mandate!
Under the transgender mandate, doctors will be forced to perform harmful "gender-transition" medical procedures on any child referred to them by a mental health professional. This is in spite of the fact that “the government’s own panel of medical experts concluded that these gender transition procedures can be harmful.” In fact, Medicaid and Medicare are not included under this mandate because of these findings!
This mandate forces doctors to adhere to a certain political ideology against their better medical judgement, in violation of the Hippocratic oath.
When you sign this petition, your note will be sent to the Department of Health and Human Services and specifically the Office for Civil Rights. We ask them to revoke this dangerous mandate. The petition will also be sent to The State of North Dakota, the Sisters of Mercy, the University of Mary, and SMP Health System (a nonprofit hospital system founded by religious sisters in North Dakota). Help us show these institutions that they have your support!
