Proposed Rule Defies State Law and Exposes HIPAA Deception
ST. PAUL, Minn. — In April, following an Executive Order, the HHS Office of Civil Rights proposed the HIPAA Privacy Rule to Support Reproductive Health Care Privacy to shield perpetrators of and participants in abortion under a broad and imprecise definition of “reproductive health care.”
By tacit admission, the proposal exposes HIPAA as NOT a privacy rule.The proposal would create a protected class of data prohibiting access to reproductive health care data if the purpose is to investigate crime or expose data on criminal activity, such as taking minors across state lines for treatments not allowed in one state but allowed in another.
This proposal would also require hospitals and clinics to acknowledge the child’s “personal representative” (i.e., school counselor, parent, doctor, etc.) as able to make these medical decisions on behalf of the child even if the hospital or clinic believes the personal representative’s decisions are abusive or harmful.
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) says this proposed rule also highlights the HIPAA hoax, the deliberate deception of the American people, who’ve been told that HIPAA protects their privacy when it permits broad data sharing.
“Congress must stop the Biden Administration’s proposed HIPAA rule revisions, which will hurt children and violate state laws. And state legislators must enact state medical privacy laws that protect their constituents from HIPAA,” says Twila Brase, RN, PHN, president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom.
According to various public comments submitted on the proposed revision, today’s HIPAA “privacy” rule is suddenly a threat to those supporting reproductive services and gender transitioning services for children, despite prohibitive state laws and parental opposition. For example, the American Medical Association suggests a new definition for “Sensitive Personal Health Care,” which would “protect reproductive health care information as well as gender-affirming care…”
“To advance their reproductive health care agenda, the Biden Administration is now trying to give people seeking abortion and other reproductive services the privacy that every patient in America has a right to, the privacy that every patient mistakenly believes they have under HIPAA. Congress should step in and reform HIPAA to be the privacy rule that every American thinks it is,” adds Brase.
