The ACLU was founded in 1920 "to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States."
Of course, the ACLU long ago lost interest in the stuff that’s actually in the Bill of Rights and is working to secure other important liberties: like the right to have doctors mutilate your private parts, whether they want to or not.
You see, according to The Daily Mail, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in Memphis, which runs hospitals and the like, has been part of the go-go growth industry that is “gender-affirming care.” But apparently some doctors are having second thoughts about doing science experiments on confused young people, and the organization called a pause in the mutilations “to review current practices.”
This inconvenienced 19-yr-ol Chris Evans, who was scheduled to send his meat and two veg back to the kitchen in November. So the Tennessee ACLU is threatening to complain to U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services if Methodist doesn’t start carving up naughty bits again by the end of the year.
The ACLU lawyer in the case said, “Ending medically necessary healthcare for one particular group of people based on sex, whether by formal written policy or simply in practice, is discrimination and violates federal law.”
Define “medically necessary.”
It seems the ACLU can do this because MLH is a bigtime Medicaid provider, making it beholden to HHS, the current professional home of USA Today Woman of the Year Rachel Levine.
So somehow, a doctor suddenly remembers the Hippocratic Oath and has qualms about hacking up your manhood, you can wield the full might of the federal government to compel him to snip your wedding tackle. And the ACLU will be your enforcer.
It’s a depraved new world.
