Conscientious Health Care Workers who Abhor Abortion Need Protection
A very hot topic in Washington D.C. -- with the pro-abortion left controlling Congress -- is the subject of the right of health care workers to not have anything to do with abortion, whatsoever, because their consciences do not permit them to do so. All decent and fair-minded Americans should be on the side of these health care workers who want nothing to do with the murder of innocent unborn children. Indeed, since the most infamous Supreme Court decision in American history, the abominable Roe v. Wade decision in January 1973, over 45 million unborn babies have been slaughtered in the wombs of their mothers.
Jonathan Imbody and his organization, the Christian Medical Association, have been hard at work to protect these health care workers at both the state and federal level. Mr. Imbody recently spoke about regulations by the Department of Health and Human Services to protect the right of conscience for health care workers with respect to abortion.
Mr. Imbody has provided information about the conscience protection regulations proposed by HHS. Please see this HHS press release and HHS Secretary Leavittâ€™s blog. A relevant Senate letter and an information sheet about federal law relevant to conscience protection are also attached.
The full text of the proposed regulations is available here. The comment period for these regulations is open until Thursday, September 25. Comments in support would be helpful â€“ comments can be submitted electronically via e-mail to email@example.com or at the site www.Regulations.gov (click on the link â€œComment or Submissionâ€ and enter the keywords â€œprovider conscienceâ€).
