Pelosi Statement on Trump Administration Assault on Women & Transgender Americans

May 24, 2019


Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Trump Administration advanced an HHS proposed rule that would end anti-discrimination protections for women and transgender Americans in health care, days after announcing a proposed rule at HUD that would strip protections for transgender Americans at homeless shelters:

“The Trump Administration’s actions show utter contempt for the health, safety and humanity of women and transgender Americans.

“According to the Trump Administration’s devastating decision to throw open the doors to sex discrimination, women could even be denied basic health care because of their reproductive decisions and history. By rolling back critical protections against discrimination in homeless shelters and the health care system, the Trump Administration is endangering transgender people at some of the most vulnerable and life-threatening moments of their lives. The Administration must reverse these dangerous rules before people get hurt or lose their lives.

“All Americans, regardless of who they are, deserve respect and access to care and support when they are most in need.”

6. Come on Max,

I can't afford (money and health wise) to waste. I've sent a small donation to our candidate for Senator in AZ, Mark Kelly. He can win. I should check in with Nate at 538 before prognosticating.

8. My BFF (matron of honor at our wedding)

was transgender. And absolutely beautiful. And her mom (a chef) threw the reception.

I say "was" because she was killed about 3 years ago by a religious nut.

11. Discrimination and cruelty because ... Jesus?

Trump isn't motivated by religious belief.

Cruelty is an end unto itself.
