“There is no moral justification for this ban,” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday in a floor speech condemning President Donald Trump’s ban of transgenders from U.S. military service.
Not only does banning transgenders from the military have no moral foundation, but it also “violates every value” of America, and is “designed to humiliate the transgender Americans,” Pelosi added:
“The President’s ban, as I said, is cruel and arbitrary, a decision designed to humiliate the transgender Americans who are risking and giving their lives for the United States of America.
“There is no moral justification for this ban, which violates every value of our American democracy and betrays our fundamental belief in fairness, dignity and respect.
“There is no medical justification for this ban, which the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association all oppose. And there is no military justification for this ban, which would undermine our military readiness and make America less strong and safe and that is according to our own military.”
