a CDC ban on 'fetus' and 'transgender?' Experts alarmed

There are 54 comments on the WWL-AM New Orleans story from Dec 16, 2017, titled a CDC ban on 'fetus' and 'transgender?' Experts alarmed. In it, WWL-AM New Orleans reports that:

Health leaders say they are alarmed about a report that officials at the nation's top public health agency are being told not to use certain words or phrases in official budget documents, including "fetus," ''transgender" and "science-based." The health community was reacting to a story in The Washington Post, which, published late Friday citing an anonymous source, said the prohibition was made at a recent meeting of senior budget officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

‘Experts’ refers to the people that use concepts both archaic & irrelevant to the modern “conservative”

Science.

Evidence.

Facts.

Find someone from the 20th century to explain how they all used to be very important to us, both a society and a civilization.

It was a glorious time.

More anonymous, unsubstantiated "news" originating at the biased Pravda on the Potomac (WaP0).

CDC spokespeople have denied these allegations and called out ABC and other news outlets for such characterization. In response, the now childish, churlish ABC responds as if people always have to get into some debate with them, where ABC controls what is printed. ABC and other mainstream media have become like the Leftist trolls here on Topix. When confronted with their falsehoods and exposed for their sick agendas, they actually believe everyone is supposed to be guided by their loaded questions instead of simply stating facts and logic. National mainstream media are now ruled by senile people and little children.

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

HHS spokesman Matt Lloyd told The Hill on Saturday.

"HHS will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans. HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions,"

the statement continued.

CDC spokespeople have denied these allegations and called out ABC and other news outlets for such characterization.

Not exactly.

The Washington Post has been proven time after time to be agenda driven, facts are irrelevant.

Are we on our way to a theocracy?

Let's also ban words like "education", "intelligence", "research", and "logic".

This CDC ban should not be ignored. It has potentially some very serious implications. Book-burning may be next.

It is imperative that the government be taken back from these savages.

right on!
Let's also ban Pocahontas and Redskins. Racist, don't you know.
Let's also call illegal aliens, foreign residents. No judgement there.
Let's also say that it's fine for Democrats to destroy and otherwise hide evidence from Congressional inquiry as long as we choose to suppose there was no intent to deceive.

Trump and his administration is taking the government back from the political class and returning it to the people.
Less than a year in office and Trump's vision is already showing how rescinding 100's of Obama's stifling Executive Orders can restore American productivity.

Trump is just a figurehead for the Republican Party to run rampant over the middle class to prop up the 1% to hoard more resources.

Trump doesn’t have the skills to lead anyone anywhere other than to his properties.

Once the Republicans are finished screwing over the middle class and get all of the goodies they have been wanting, they will let Trump disintegrate.

He's or She is correct. Trump's the chief stooge being used to bring the stooges in the Republican party base inline to accomplish their long desired agenda number one being the presently constructed Tax Scam taking away middle class programs to finance $6 trillion dollars in tax cuts for 535 of the wealthies plutocrats and oligarchs.

Not long following the signing of the tax cut and draining social security and Medicare Republicans in Congress will abandon Trump then blame the chaos on him.

65% want Trump out of our oval office and dumped on Pennsylvania Ave

In Alabama's exit poll Tuesday Trump's approval was 48%

People elected Jones because their intent was to send Trump fair warning. Trump's sending people to vote and compete against established politicians all over America who haven't participated in their communitie elections in years if ever.

They're feed up with Trump's racial and sociall divisiveness and recognize his fake populist rhetoric as another fraud being pulled on his supporting fans

Nonsense.
We taxpayers, as differentiated from tax takers (who include Government workers), are quite happy with being able to keep the fruits of our labor.
Do we care that 535 people get to keep more than we do?
Nope.
We'd rather that then have more of our earnings handed over to millions of indolent sloths.
