Trump-Backed 'Conscience' Rule for Healthcare Providers Voided by US Judge

Trump-Backed 'Conscience' Rule for Healthcare Providers Voided by US Judge.

The rule made it easier for healthcare workers, including doctors and nurses, to deny certain services due to moral or religious reasons.

Critics of the rule have said it could allow for open discrimination against the LGBTQ community or refusal to perform abortion procedures.

According to U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer, the "conscience" rule is coercive.

.

It would permit the withholding of billions in federal funding from providers that failed to comply.

Wherever the outermost line where persuasion gives way to coercion lies, the threat to pull all HHS funding here crosses it, U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer, via Reuters.

Judge Engelmayer's ruling stands in New York and 21 other states.

A similar lawsuit filed in California is also challenging the rule
