It just got a little weirder.
A man trying to further his sex-change operation is suing a Catholic hospital for refusing to give him breast augmentation surgery.
He's suing under an anti-discrimination law:
Wertz believed the hospital’s policy violates the Unruh Act, a state law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation. “There's simply no religious exemption in the Unruh Act," Wertz said. "We're talking about a type of care that's OK for one class but not another.”
Catholic News Agency has the story.
Recent opponents of anti-discrimination laws in California were claiming they would mandate gay activism in school textbooks and curricula. Even these hyperbolic activists never saw this one coming. I fear the lawsuit has a good chance of success.
This scenario, bending of both gender and mind, adds one more issue to the Colorado Exempla Health/Sisters of Charity hospital merger dispute.
