Keep Conscience Protections in Place for Physicians, Pharmacists, Nurses, etc.

Righting First Amendment Wrongs

As the period for public comment draws to a close this week many prominent pro-life groups and leaders are calling on religious, Christian Americans, and all men of good will to inundate Washington with petitions to retain regulations protecting healthcare workers' conscience rights.

Actually, the open public comment period will end tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, which is thirty days after President Soetoro (a/k/a Obama) formally announced his intention to rescind the Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations in the Federal Register.

These regulations, which were enacted by President Bush just prior to leaving office, enforce existing federal laws that acknowledge the rights of health care workers – Physicians, Pharmacists, Nurses, etc. - not to be forced to perform or provide for procedures - such as performing, aiding or abetting in abortions such as dispensing Abortifacient drugs such as RU486 (the human pesticide) - that would violate their personal, moral, or religious beliefs.

Unfortunately, this is yet another attempt of the vehemently pro-death president in his undeclared war on the pre-born. Here is one place for all pro-life persons to try to hold the line on the ever-advancing march of the administration wave of destructive attacks against human life. All life is precious and sacred. However, that fact is not acknowledged or regarded by secular humanists in control of our government. The president and the majority party in Congress believe that they, themselves, are god and reject the absolute truth of the existence of good and evil. Instead, they base their worldview, their policies, and their actions on godless, incredulous secular-humanism.

TAKE ACTION

(1) Email HHS

Comments may be submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services by email at proposedrescission@hhs.gov

Here is a suggested wording to include in your email:

“Please keep the freedom of conscience regulation, (the December 19, 2008 final rule). Please also enforce all the laws protecting the right of health care providers – including Physicians, Pharmacist, Nurses, etc. - to serve patients without violating medical ethics or their moral or religious convictions. The government has a responsibility to patients to ensure that the conscience rights of all health care providers are protected.”
(2) Call the White House

All concerned Americans should also call the White House comment line (202-456-1111) between the hours of 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern, Mon.-Fri.) and ask to leave a message for the President. The message we should leave is to request that the president and HHS to keep the freedom of conscience protections for health care workers, as outlined in the December 19, 2008 regulations, in place.

I called the White House comment line on Thursday. It took 15-20 minutes of calling to get through. When I finally got through the comment line operator said that they had been getting a lot of calls from physicians, surgeons and other health care workers.

Now let's see if President Soetoro (alias Obama) or his HHS listens.

It is highly doubtful, especially when you consider all the damage done to date by this radical socialist president and the Democratic Congress . . .
