Trump’s health care conscience protections under legal attack from states and cities including Chicago and Cook County

Trump’s health care conscience protections under legal attack from states and cities including Chicago and Cook County
In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago and Cook County, Illinois, 19 states filed suit in federal district court in New York to flout conscience protections for health care providers put in place by Department of Health and Human Services.

In the State of New York v.

California filed a similar lawsuit separately in State of California v. Azar.  Click here for more.
