Last Chance–Conscience Protection

Today is the last day to offer commentary on the proposed rescission of conscience-protection regulations. Emails can be sent to proposedrescission@hhs.gov. More details are available here.

And here is a sample letter:

To whom it may concern:

I strongly oppose plans to rescind conscience-protection regulations.

The proposed rescission of conscience-protection regulations is inconsistent with the status quo, where conscientious objectors are not discriminated against for refusing to engage in combat or administer lethal injections.

Health care professionals should not be forced to participate in acts that violate their consciences, and their right to follow their consciences should be protected by law. Additionally, patients should have the freedom to choose doctors and health care providers who share their values.

Please retain the conscience regulation, and enforce current laws protecting the right of health care providers to serve patients without violating their moral and religious convictions.

Sincerely,

Name
