Equality California: Sign our petition to end healthcare discrimination against LGBTQ+ people

Equality California: Sign our petition to end healthcare discrimination against LGBTQ+ people

Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act made it illegal for healthcare providers to discriminate based on race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

“Sex” here includes sexual orientation, gender identity and pregnancy. That means doctors would not be allowed to turn away LGBTQ+ patients or deny them healthcare simply because of who they are.
