FEATURING ROB BOSTON – President Donald Trump this week announced the released of a lengthy set of rules that critics say, gives the religious right more cover to discriminate against women and minority groups based on their personal beliefs.
The document, coming ironically from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights, is 440 pages in length and was announced by Trump at the White House during the National Day of Prayer.
The rules include allowing healthcare workers from refusing to offer services such as abortion and sterilization.
