The director for the Centers for Disease Control is trying to ease tensions that arose after media reports that the health agency would be banned from using words like “fetus,” “transgender,” and “evidence-based” in official budget documents

CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald tweeted Sunday that the agency would not let up on its commitment to educate and inform Americans about major health issues.

Many Americans, particularly LGBTQ people, are skeptical. Since the president’s inauguration, the Trump administration has scrubbed many official websites of LGBTQ content without much explanation.
