A federal judge overturned a 2016 Obama era policy that protected transgenders against healthcare providers who used religious freedom to deny treatment.

Judge Reed O'Connor in the Northern District of Texas overturned the 2016 ObamaCare protections for transgenders on Tuesday.

The Obama era policy prevented insurers and providers who receive federal funds from denying patients on the basis of sex, gender identity or termination of pregnancy.

The policy required doctors and hospitals to provide "medically necessary" services to transgender individuals as long as those services were the same ones provided to other patients.

President Obama's Department of Health and Human Services defended a challenge by a group of Christian providers as well as five conservative states.

But President Trump's administration dropped the defense in 2017 after Trump took office.

LGBT advocates complain that overturning the policy will allow doctors and hospitals to deny treatment to transgenders.

Cracks have begun to appear in President Donald Trump's steely armor, as he lashed out at reports that suggested he worked with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump denied the allegations after a Washington Post report detailed an FBI investigation into Trump's alleged dealings with Russia.

Obama

The Obama administration continues to overburden the health care industry with unnecessary legislation.

Under a proposed regulation by the Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday, transgender people and cross-dressers will be allowed to share hospital rooms with patients who fit their sexual identity.

In other words, if you are a biological female, you could wake up from surgery to find a man wearing a wig sharing your hospital room.

And if you complain too loudly about sharing your room with a cross-dressing man, you could be labeled a bigot by the hospital staff.
