Today, a Christian doctor will challenge a legal judgment which ruled that Christian biblical beliefs on gender are not ‘worthy of respect in a democratic society’ and are ‘incompatible with human dignity.’

Dr Mackereth, 58, an A&E doctor with 28 years’ experience, will challenge the ruling at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in London on March 28 and 29.

The case comes after Boris Johnson last week in parliament said that: “when it comes to distinguishing between a man and a woman, the basic facts of biology remain overwhelmingly important.

In 2018 Dr Mackereth was sacked as a medical assessor for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) after refusing to identify clients by their chosen gender instead of their biological sex.
