Counseling to help with gender dysphoria and confusion is a constitutional right to be upheld.

If aperson has become pysphoric or confused about their body and gender it will help them to receive counsel that matches their faith background. In the DSM these items have legitimate basis for being an emotionally based disorder. It is right and constitutional for these people to receive services from faith based counselors of their choice. The VA government should not in any way hinder people from getting the help they need.
