Thank you for taking 2 minutes to submit a comment in opposition of discrimination in a health care setting. You are joining us in the fight to protect Section 1557 of the Health Care Rights Law, a part of the Affordable Care Act that bans gender discrimination. Stories and comments will be posted openly online and may be used in our continuing advocacy for equality.

The new interpretation of the nondiscrimination provision of Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act will directly affect the very communities the law is meant to protect including women, older adults, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community. These populations already face high levels of discrimination by health care providers. I oppose the proposal to rollback protections on 1557.
