Biden Administration Misses Deadline for Appeal in Major Case

Religious liberty groups are celebrating and liberal groups are livid right now.

The Biden administration missed a filing deadline to appeal a significant case for transgender reassignment surgery.

Now, the decision by the lower court will stand, which is a crushing blow to liberals who want to have doctors perform transgender reassignment surgery against their will.

Crushing Blow

The legislation at stake was an Obama-era order that mandated doctors and hospitals to perform gender reassignment surgery on any patient, including children, even if the doctor objected to the surgery or disagreed with it medically.

Now, I don't know about you, but I would never want a doctor who did not want to operate on me doing surgery.

A large group of religious organizations sued the Obama administration when the order was first put into play.

The case fell to the Biden administration when the Fifth Circuit blocked the order.

Biden had until November 25, 2022, to appeal the decision, but no appeal was ever filed.

Goodrich followed that tweet by stating, "The final demise of this unconscionable mandate is a significant victory for conscience rights and compassionate medical care in America.

"Thousands of doctors will be able to do their jobs without the government requiring them to perform harmful, irreversible procedures against their conscience and medical expertise."

There is a similar case pending in the Eight Circuit, which the government did appeal, and that Goodrich mentioned in his tweet above, so this battle is not quite over yet.

This could have been a decision to appeal in a court where the administration felt it had a better chance of success.

That decision is expected to be handed down in just a few weeks.

However that decision falls, expect the case to go to the Supreme Court after the decision is announced.
