Health care is a civil and human right. No one should suffer from discrimination when they are seeking medical attention and health care providers should always put their patients first. The newly proposed interpretation of Section 1557 of the Health Care Rights Law endangers the health and lives of LGBTQ+ people, women, older adults, and people with disabilities. These are the very populations the law was meant to protect, and they are already facing high levels of discrimination by health care providers. I oppose the proposal to rollback protections on 1557.
