In "Victory for Patients and Doctors," Federal Judge Says He Will Block Trump's "Arrogant" Gag Rule Gutting Title X Funding

In "Victory for Patients and Doctors," Federal Judge Says He Will Block Trump's "Arrogant" Gag Rule Gutting Title X Funding

Julia Conley, staff writer

A federal judge on Tuesday night ruled that he would block President Donald Trump's proposed rule gutting the Title X healthcare funding program, which would limit and control the healthcare that's available to American women.

Judge Michael McShane of the U.S. District Court of Oregon called Trump's proposed rule, which was set to go into effect May 3, "a ham-fisted approach to public health policy."

From the article:

“At the heart of these rules is an arrogant assumption that the government is better suited to direct women’s healthcare than their providers.”

Permit me to edit:

“At the heart of these rules is an arrogant assumption that the man is better suited to direct women’s lives than the woman.”

At some point, patriarchy and the Abrahamic religions are inextricably intertwined. Someday, we may be free from both, to the benefit of ALMOST all.

One needs a diaper and a barf bag if you want to follow around the Trump pachyderms.
