When it comes to social engineering the lunacy of the left knows no bounds, whether it’s attempting to manipulate traditional values or redefining sexual orientation, secular progressives continue to push the limits of civility and those values within a civil society.
And to that end the Attorney General of Texas along with the courts came to the rescue to temporarily stop the madness with a nationwide injunction blocking a new ObamaCare mandate which actually forces taxpayers to fund transgender reassignment surgeries and abortions.
The slight-of-hand that progressives are masters at in redefining verbiage to mean something else, in this instance the word “sex” was redefined as a state of mind, which by it’s new definition would have allowed for transgender reassignment surgeries and abortions, which would have taken effect on January 1st, 2017, and 19-days before Obama leaves office.
However a federal district court judge on Saturday granted Attorney General Ken Paxton’s request to stop any implementation of the new federal health mandates that would have forced the Employees Retirement System of Texas to change its insurance coverage to include gender reassignment and abortion.
The progressive “play-on-words” was implemented in July when the Department of Health and Human Services decided to redefine the term “sex” as a state of mind, and not a biological fact, which no doubt has many doctors scratching their heads at the absurdity of this administration’s attempt to push through another unaffordable health mandate that has been rejected time and again by the tax payers forced into paying for something they don’t want, and perhaps find morally objectionable.
The Texas Attorney General on Sunday released a statement saying: “The Obama administration is attempting to redefine the law so that the term ‘sex’ means one’s ‘internal sense of gender which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female,’ even though the president lacks the authority to rewrite the law.” When Congress enacted the law for ObamaCare, it used the term “sex” as a biological category.”
Paxton continued; “This striking example of federal overreach under ObamaCare would force many doctors, hospitals and other health care providers in Texas to participate in sex-reassignment surgeries and treatments, even if it violates their best medical judgment or their religious beliefs, I will always fight to protect the constitutional rights of Texans.”
