Yet again, Joe Biden has been dealt a massive loss in the courts.
We are now seeing just how important it was for Donald Trump to keep that steady flow of judicial appointments when he was in office.
Yet again, a Trump-appointed judge has come to the rescue to block Biden's legislation.
The latest rejection by the courts is a significant one.
The question is if doctors can reject patients who want to have gender reassignment surgery.
Personally, I do not understand why anyone would want a surgeon to operate on them that did not want to perform a procedure, but I digress.
The protections cited in the legislation tapped into workplace discrimination laws.
Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk says they do not apply to healthcare.
He wrote," Congress limited Section 1557's protections to those afforded by other federal statutes – including Title IX.
"Because Title IX does not protect 'sexual orientation' or 'gender identity' status, neither does Section 1557."
He added that the meaning of Title IX "remains intact until changed by Congress, or perhaps the Supreme Court."
The Department of Health and Human Services interpreted "on the basis of sex" to include "sexual orientation" or "gender identity."
The judge, however, stated, "As written and commonly construed, Title IX operates in binary terms – male and female – when it references 'on the basis of sex.'"
The Biden administration has been guilty of redefining terms since Joe Biden took office, and now it is finally getting called out for it.
