DHHS: Physicians’ Conscience Clear….For Now.

leave a comment »

On September 24, we reported about the US DHHS’ proposed rule that would promote the freedom of conscience among physicians.  If you follow that link, you can also read the comments we submitted.  I know many of you submitted similar comments as well.

We are pleased to report now, that DHHS has adopted the proposed rule, despite the objections of groups like Planned Parenthood and others.

Thanks to all of you who submitted comments in support of a physician’s right of conscience.  Remain vigilant.  Secretary Leavitt has done a fine thing by adopting this regulation, but it appears that his incoming replacement will be former Senator Tom Daschle.  Given President-elect Obama’s repeated commitments to passing the Freedom of Choice Act and expanding the death grip of Planned Parenthood, we must remain active in our stewardship of government.
