(The Hill) A federal judge on Tuesday overturned ObamaCare protections for transgender patients ruling that a 2016 policy violates the religious freedom of Christian providers. Judge Reed OConnor in the Northern District of Texas vacated an Obama-era regulation that prohibited insurers and providers who receive federal money from denying treatment or coverage to anyone based on sex gender identity or termination of pregnancy. It also required doctors and hospitals to provide medically necessary" services to transgender individuals as long as those services were the same ones provided to other patients. OConnor the same judge who last year ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional said the rule violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
