“Unless we’re able to block it first, President Donald Trump’s Denial of Care Rule will go into effect one month from today – putting all of our lives at risk. The rule invites any health care worker – including doctors, nurses, paramedics, orderlies and receptionists – to deny care to any patient on the basis of the worker’s religious or moral beliefs.
Anyone could be denied care, even in life-threatening circumstances, because of who they are, who they love, what they believe or what medical care they’re seeking. Women, LGBTQ people, patients with AIDS or HIV, and religious minorities are particularly at risk.
