The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) needs public support to protect the religious and conscience rights of doctors, nurses and other professionals from being coerced into participating in medical procedures such as abortion, sterilization or assisted suicide that violate their consciences.
Please thank them for their efforts and encourage them to continue their defense of this inalienable right.
The Trump administration has issued a proposed regulation to enforce existing conscience rights laws that the Obama administration refused to enforce. In some cases, states such as California and Washington are mandating abortion coverage in violation of federal law! During Obama's administration, pro-life health care providers were given two options: violate their religious and conscience rights or suffer the consequences, despite previously passed federal laws that should have protected them from this discrimination.
This year alone, more than 300 health workers have complained to HHS about their religious or conscience rights being violated by an employer, a state, or a health care provider. These complaints show just how systemic government discrimination against pro-life medical providers in our country has become.
The HHS needs public support of this regulatory fix, since liberal groups are criticizing the regulation because they want the government to force pro-life nurses and doctors to participate in abortion!
