The Biden Administration has issued mandates that would force religious non-profits as well as for-profit employers to pay for and perform gender transition surgeries, according to a federal lawsuit filed by Alliance Defending Freedom.
ADF, the nation’s largest law firm handling religious liberty issues, says the mandates would also cover gender transition procedures, counseling and treatments in violation of their religious beliefs.
ADF filed a motion in federal court asking the court to immediately halt enforcement of the mandates.
The lawsuit, Christian Employers Alliance v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, explains that the agency is misinterpreting and improperly enforcing discrimination based on sex in Title VII to force religious employers to pay for and provide health insurance coverage for gender transition surgeries and procedures.
Additionally, the lawsuit challenges the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ reinterpretation of “sex” in federal law to include gender identity, thereby forcing religious healthcare providers to physically perform or facilitate gender transition surgeries and procedures, contrary to their deeply held beliefs.
