A woman who wanted a hysterectomy so she could pretend to be a man is now suing a hospital for not taking part in her "transition."
The craziest part is that she had the procedure done with very little fuss or opposition but she, along with the ACLU, believes that Catholic institutions must be made to conform, must be made to submit. The ACLU has now filed suit against Dignity Health Hospital in California.
The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco Superior Court, alleges that Dignity discriminated against Evan Michael Minton, 35, when she sought a hysterectomy as part of her "transition." So Dignity said it couldn't perform the surgery at one of their Catholic hospitals but it was quite willing to perform it at one of their non-Catholic hospitals.
Horror upon horror, amiright?
The Sacramento Bee reports:
Last summer, Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael, part of the Dignity Health chain, abruptly canceled Minton’s surgery the day before it was scheduled to take place. His doctor eventually performed the procedure at another Sacramento-area hospital, but the initial denial still causes frustration and disappointment, Minton said. After months of reflection, he decided to take legal action against the San Francisco-based hospital chain.The piece goes on to discuss the facts that "legal protections for transgender people are under attack."
“It devastated me, and I don’t want it to affect my transgender brothers and sisters the way it affected me,” Minton said Tuesday. “No one should have to go through that.”
The case pits the desires of transgender patients seeking sexual reassignment surgery against Catholic doctrines, which bar sterilizations such as hysterectomies in most instances. And it comes as federal and state lawmakers across the country are attempting to roll back protections of transgender persons, according to the ACLU, which joined the firm Covington & Burling in filing the lawsuit.
What the what?!!!!!!
This woman got exactly what she wanted but the fact that someone somewhere said the most dreaded word in the world to her - "NO", she's calling it discrimination and a violation of her rights. Let's be clear, her decision to act as a man doesn't mean the rest of the world needs to play along. We don't.
There is a war on Christians in this country, it is a war on religious liberty. It is fed by hatred, lawyers, media, and money. Our only protection against is love, lawyers, and prayer. Lots and lots of prayer.
