At the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing last Thursday, Democrats passed a bill to require federal health officials to question anyone seeking services from Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) community health centers or other programs about their sexual orientation and gender identity.
Introduced by Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), H.R. 6109 requires HHS to obtain, retain and analyze sexual identity information from patients who seek healthcare, including children.
This bill is about collecting data, no more, no less, Baldwin said.
According to Baldwin, the current lack of cultural competency among federal officials means that we are left with gaping holes in our knowledge on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) policy resulting in significant health disparities.
Baldwin is the first openly-declared lesbian elected to Congress.
The new bills requirements would apply to all HHS health service programs, requiring the health service employees to ask everyone receiving services their sexual orientation and gender identity -- including those that focus on children at school-based health centers. Children who seek help at government-funded school health clinics would be asked whether or not they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or if they know their gender identity.

True—our school is using the same building since they opened their doors on 9/8/1930! It wouldn’t be possible to keep costs so low if it wasn’t for the great efforts of the parents who volunteer their time and talents to the school. The Spring Festival draws people from all over the area and profits around $125,000 each year. The 2010 festival netted $131K! When you have a stake in how the school operates, you have a tendency to be more involved and take ownership of it.
A 4.5 minutes commercial was just released on Youtube last week that was produced thanks to the generosity of individuals in the school and parish.
Sorry for the double post...
