WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – The Biden administration appears ready to strip conscience rights from medical professionals and potentially require them to commit abortions, provide transgender procedures, and euthanize people.
The White House regulatory affairs office has published a placeholder for a “Rescission of the Regulation” of the “Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care; Delegations of Authority” rule finalized under the Trump administration in 2019.
That regulation provides conscience protections for professionals who do not want to engage in “abortion, sterilization, and certain other health services,” “assisted suicide, euthanasia, or mercy killing,” and for “managed care organizations with moral or religious objections to counseling or referral for certain services.”
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) flagged the pending regulation in a news release.
ADF Senior Counsel Matt Bowman stated:
No American should be forced to violate their ethical and religious beliefs. Doctors, nurses, and other medical providers should enjoy this same constitutional protection, free to live and work in a manner consistent with their faith.
Yet the Biden administration’s proposed rule would abandon health care professionals to being forced to perform medical procedures that directly violate their religious beliefs or risk losing their jobs. This is an illegal and gross overreach of executive power, and we urge the administration to withdraw this harmful proposal immediately.
Since taking office, the Biden administration has consistently sought to undermine religious freedom protections while promoting abortion and “gender-affirming care.”
For example, under Biden, the Department of Justice (DOJ) dropped its lawsuit against the University of Vermont for allegedly coercing a pro-life nurse to assist with an abortion. The decision drew criticism from Roger Severino, former Director of the Office of Civil Rights at the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), who initiated the case while working in the Trump administration.
“Such a politically motivated backstab means it’s open season on pro-life doctors and nurses,” he warned last year.
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

The administration also released two documents in March of this year that encouraged the chemical and genital mutilation of gender-confused children under the guise of providing healthcare.
The administration has also ignored established rule-making processes to try to force Americans to pay for abortions, in violation of provisions of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) that explicitly forbid insurance companies from charging individuals to cover other people’s abortions.
The HHS, under Secretary Xavier Becerra, has sought to remove pro-life regulations, including a prohibition on fetal experimentation from aborted babies. Becerra also sent millions to Texas abortion facilities in the wake of the state’s Heartbeat Act.
The Catholic Benefits Association recently warned that the administration plans to force health plans to cover abortion and “sex change” operations.
