New: @PPFA and the @ACLU filed separate lawsuits in SDNY suing @HHSGov for issuing a rule that "would allow almost any health care provider" to deny "virtually any health service" -- or withhold info on health care options -- based on personal objections alone. @CourthouseNews

The challenge the rule, set to take effect on July 22, 2019, as "arbitrary and capricious," in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).

The Trump administration has a long-established trend of losing APA cases.

The ACLU just issued its press release on this.

“The ACLU will not stand by as our government institutes policy that could endanger people’s lives,” its senior staff attorney Alexa Kolbi-Molinas said.
