President Joe Biden is going after Donald Trump’s legacy with every thing he has.
According to Breitbart News, Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) said its Office for Civil Rights (OCR) “will interpret sexual discrimination in federal healthcare rules to include sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Today, OCR announced it will interpret and enforce Section 1557’s prohibition on discrimination to include discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Learn more: https://t.co/BCMx0Hte0r

This decision undoes the rule set in place by Trump’s administration. Breitbart called it a “reversal of the decision …to restore the biology-based, male-female definition of sexual discrimination in federal healthcare regulations.”
Biden’s transgender HHS Assistant Secretary Rachel (who used to be named Richard) Levine said the following:
The mission of our Department is to enhance the health and well-being of all Americans, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation. All people need access to healthcare services to fix a broken bone, protect their heart health, and screen for cancer risk. No one should be discriminated against when seeking medical services because of who they are.
