In January, a North Dakota federal judge struck down what was known as the “Transgender Mandate” in Obamacare that required doctors and hospitals to perform gender mutilation surgery on physically healthy patients if they demanded it. The law contained no religious exemption.
On Tuesday, the Biden administration filed an appeal with the U.S. Eighth Circuit arguing doctors are engaging in discrimination by refusing to pick up the scalpel.
Philosophy professor Dr. Brian Huffling of Southern Evangelical Seminary says such a mandate goes against every instinct of a physician, especially a conscious-following Christian, to cut off healthy body parts.
