Trump administration reportedly prohibits CDC from using words like 'transgender,' 'fetus'

CDC Tells Staff to Avoid Seven Words, Including “Evidence-Based”

The Washington Post reported that policy analysts at the CDC were told in a meeting Thursday to not use certain words in any official documents for preparing for the budget for fiscal year 2019.

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases.

The administration prohibited these words from being used in the budget, which should be released in February, and in supporting materials for Congress and CDC partners. For example, instead of "evidence-based" and "science-based", they were told to write "CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes".

NARAL Pro-Choice America was among those decrying the news, the latest evidence of the Trump administration's blatant disregard for scientific integrity.

The administration's push to prevent the CDC from discussing "diversity" comes amid Omarosa Manigault Newman's highly-publicized resignation from her post as White House senior official.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Not as cold tonight; cloudy skies through the weekend
For the end of the week we will warm back into the 50s with the next best chance of rain being Friday at 30%. Most of Southwest Louisiana will cool down to the mid 40s, while a couple places may reach the upper 30s.

"Forbidding scientists and researchers from using medically accurate terminology in order to push an extreme, ideological agenda is more "dystopia" than "United States of America, '" Long said in a statement".

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

The Trump administration in its early days quickly scrubbed information related to LGBTQ people from the Health and Human Services website, and the Associated Press reported in March that the US Census Bureau would not include a category for LGBTQ people in its proposal for the 2020 census. The CDC released an issue brief on transgender communities and HIV in 2016 and gathers information on LGB youth's experience with harassment, dating violence, and bullying. Once Trump took office, however, the administration pulled back from including the questions.

By the way, the CDC has a budget of about $7 billion and more than 12,000 employees, working on everything from food and water safety to heart disease to infectious disease outbreak prevention.
