Anti-Science Biden Admin. Just Redefined Sex as 'Non-Biological' for Transgender Agenda

In another blow to real science, the Joe Biden administration just redefined sex as “non-biological” in its growing campaign to push aside truth for the far left’s political agenda.

Science, of course, defines sex strictly in biological terms because, well, that is what it is. There are two and only two. But the left’s political agenda hopes to undermine facts to push its leftist, anti-science agenda. Naturally, the Biden administration is rushing to warp federal policy to satisfy the destructive, left-wing, transgender agenda.

Consequently, on Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that sex is “not biological.”

According to the National Review:

The notice of enforcement, while not a binding federal rule, signals that the federal government will begin interpreting Section 1557 — the non-discrimination provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual identity, rather than simply banning discrimination based on biological sex, as the Trump administration had. The change will likely require that states, which set their own Medicaid eligibility requirements, provide gender-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy to Medicaid recipients.

“The Supreme Court has made clear that people have a right not to be discriminated against on the basis of sex and receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation (SOGI). That’s why today HHS announced it will act on related reports of discrimination,” HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a statement announcing the change.

Many private insurers, such as Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield, and managed care organizations, such as United Healthcare, already cover transition surgeries and hormone therapy, and have an incentive to comply with the Biden administration’s definition of discrimination in order to avoid expensive litigation.

The move by the HHS is just part of Biden’s Executive Order 13988, an effort to rewrite federal rules to satisfy the transgender agenda.
