Instead of combating discrimination in accessing health care and insurance coverage, the Administration is looking for any opportunity to weaken the Health Care Rights Law’s protections, which have been life saving for many transgender and non-binary people.

HHS then turned around and cited that very lawsuit as a reason for changing the regulations. But HHS cannot use its failure to defend current protections as a reason to gut them.
