The Trump administration yanked the rug out from under more than a million Americans on Friday by removing protections that prohibit discrimination in health care against transgender patients. This move -- announced on the four-year anniversary of a shooting at a gay nightclub in Orland, Florida, in which 49 people died -- is cruel and unusual punishment from an administration that chooses to represent a small and extreme fringe pushing to further marginalize the already disadvantaged.

Hello LGBTQ community!!! I need your help!! I am a student in college and currently I am doing a case study on Evan Minton. He is from the Bay Area California. Just recently he was trying to get a hysterectomy at a Catholic Hospital. The hospital declined his surgery after the appointment had been made. They supposedly didn't notice what kind of surgery it was until a couple days before hand and canceled the procedure. The Catholic Church do not allow such procedures at their hospital because it is against their beliefs. Do you believe Evan Minton should of gotten the surgery? Do you feel that it was right for the hospital to decline because it was against their religious beliefs? How do you feel like it should of been handle? Have you had any experiences alike to Evan Minton? Thank you so much for your time!! Hope you have a beautiful day :)
