A Washington state woman filed a lawsuit Thursday against the Catholic health organization she works for, saying it discriminated against her by refusing to pay for her child's chest reconstruction surgery as the child transitions to be a boy.
The American Civil Liberties Union is representing Cheryl Enstad and her teenage son Pax, who allege PeaceHealth violated both Obamacare and state law in refusing to cover the treatment.
The mother worked as a medical social worker for PeaceHealth and received insurance coverage through her employer. When Pax was diagnosed with gender dysphoria, his doctor suggested he have chest reconstructive surgery. But when the pre-surgery authorization was submitted to PeaceHealth, the company denied the coverage, stating that it doesnt cover "transgender services."

The Left continues its attack on the church. We’ll see how the Leftist DemocRATS do with churchgoers at the next Election.
Another confused and now mutuilated nitwit and yet more people championing insanity.
Gender dysphoria = Cray-Cray!
Stop promoting/funding flagrant mental illness!
Two freakshow freaks.
So when did insurance start providing coverage for elective surgery?
How can someone sue for something that was not covered in the first place?
Dismissed with out action.
She can probably get her dad’s penis sewed onto her. Apparently, he won’t be needing it anymore.
Whoever this quack is needs to be decertified. That’s a real condition?
FYI, no relation.
I’m a 6’, 125 pound, leggy, blonde, high-heel wearing Melania-Clone stuck inside of a 5’1” middle aged, barn-boot wearing farm wife and I want OUT!
Who speaks for me? *SNORT*
These people are NUTS. ‘Dad’ looks so proud, does he not? Good Lord.
Only in America these days, would someone ask a court for someone else to pay for their mistake.
Are mom and dad related?
Well they had cash on hand and decided to cover the surgery themselves instead of spend it on something else. What is the problem, besides having a daughter who got caught up in the gender psychosis war? And why didn’t they just go to a hospital that operates by thier political views? There are plenty of them now. But liberals are forever miserable and someone must pay. It’s always about revenge and money.

Elective surgery is not usually covered, is it? If he/she/it doesn’t have the surgery, he/she/it will not die, will he/she/it?
Which is the boy, and which is the girl?
If you want to chop/add a dick, then pay for it yourself! Why should other people pay for that?
I wonder how much the ACLU is charging this mother for their services?
According to the leftists, the surgery is "medically necessary".
Why so many in this country were willing to buy into this is beyond me. I know someone will say indoctrination by the schools and MSM, but this would have been correctly written off as insanity in saner times.
The child should be taken from her because of proven child abuse.
