Ce soir j’ai décidé d’être 7 fois en contravention avec la loi (américaine)
« In a country like United-States, where medecine is mainly a science-based practice, where the ethnic diversity is definitly an evidence-based reality for the nation, it is clear that any vulnerable people such as elderly, transgender, pregnant women (including fetus) and generaly speaking the poorest part of the population have entitlement to medical aid. »
CDC banned words: How the CDC used ‘vulnerable,’ “transgender” and other newly banned words in past documents — Quartz
The Centers for Disease Control is the main public health institute in the United States. It is committed to helping Americans in a way that is science-based—er, oops, I can’t say that now.
That’s because the Trump administration has barred the CDC from using a list of words it apparently doesn’t want “in any official documents being prepared for next year’s budget,” according to reporting from the Washington Post. Here is the list of words that are now banned:

CDC gets list of forbidden words: Fetus, transgender, diversity - The Washington Post
The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.
Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden terms at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden terms are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”
In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or “evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.
