Trump Administration Bans CDC From Using 7 Words and Phrases

Trump administration reportedly bans use of 'fetus,' 'evidence-based,' other phrases at CDC

According to the Post, other CDC officials have confirmed the existence of a list of forbidden words, raising the possibility that the ban is in effect in other parts of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The Washington Post reports the Trump administration asked the CDC not to use seven words.

The words are: transgender, diversity, abortion, fetus, vulnerable, entitlement, evidence-based, and science-based - you know, the kind of terms authoritarians tend to embrace wholeheartedly.

"The assertion that HHS has "banned words" is a complete mischaracterization of discussions regarding the budget formulation process", the HHS statement said.

"You can not fight against the Zika virus, or improve women's and fetal health, if you are unable to use the word "fetus.' You must be able to talk about science and evidence if you are to research cures for infectious diseases such as Ebola", Singiser said". Especially troubling to Halpern was that top officials had suggested that instead of putting primary emphasis on science, staff should write that "the CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes". Then last March HHS dropped questions about sexual orientation & gender identity in two surveys of elderly people erasing LGBTQ seniors. "You must be able to acknowledge the humanity of transgender people in order to address their health care needs".

The move additionally provoked inquiries concerning why Trump's organization would need to see less employments of science or confirmation based realities in reports.

Following the news of the banned words, Twitter was flooded with remarks from individuals anxious about a ban on the expressions science-based and confirm based, while others featured feelings of trepidation over the words transgender and assorted variety being banned - with a board individual from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health portraying the move as "very stunning". Additionally, any mention of climate change has been removed from the Environmental Protection Agency's website.
