The Trump administration is set to allow health workers to reject transgender patients.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order past year instructing agencies to expand religious liberty under federal law, and HHS has been at the leading edge of implementing that directive.
The division would enforce that protection and conduct compliance reviews, audits and other enforcement actions to ensure that health care providers are allowing workers with religious or moral objections to opt out. The move "affirms the right of all Americans not to be forced to participate in abortion".
"This is the use of religion to hurt people because you disapprove of who they are", said Harper Jean Tobin, policy director for the National Centre for Transgender Equality.
Williams Institute Executive Director Jocelyn Samuels, former Director of HHS OCR from 2014 to the end of the Obama Administration, said, "Research demonstrates the health disparities and discrimination to which the transgender community is subject.

Jean, CEO of the Los Angeles LGBT Center. He told the Washington Post, "Imposing their values on a patient is not in consort with our professional job as doctors".
Louise Melling, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, released this statement: "Religious liberty doesn't include a right to be exempt from laws protecting our health or barring discrimination".
