President Obama is seeking to strip health care workers of conscience protection

We must not be silent on this issue!

Perhaps you have never before responded to one of our Action Alerts. Please make this the exception. The religious freedom of hundreds of thousands of health care workers is at stake. And your message can make a difference!

Over the weekend President Obama quietly announced his intention to rescind the conscience protection rule set in place by President Bush in December. That’s the rule that protects doctors and other health care workers from being forced to perform or promote abortions contrary to their moral objections.

The Bush policy, implemented through an HHS rule, cuts off federal funding for state and local governments, hospitals, clinics and other entities if they do not accommodate doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other employees who refuse to participate in care that violates their personal, moral or religious beliefs.

If the conscience rule is rescinded, health care workers could lose their jobs or could have their professional licenses revoked for adhering to their deeply held religious beliefs.

According to the Washington Post, administration officials have promised that the president’s proposal to rescind the rule would be open to public comment for 30 days.

It is imperative that we who believe in the sanctity of life and religious freedom let the President know where we stand on this issue. Please click the link below to send the president a message.

Pro-abortion activists who would strip health care professionals of this fundamental right are in the minority. But they are a very vocal minority and they will make their position known on this issue. Pro-life, pro-faith Americans must respond to this opportunity.
