A national organization of Christian doctors is strongly concerned about the Obama administration’s effort to rescind conscience protections the Bush administration put in place for medical professionals.
The regulations provide additional protections and support for those doctors and nurses who don’t want to be involved in abortions and may face pressure from medical institutions receiving federal funds.
As LifeNews.com recently reported, documents the Obama administration filed in November and December have Obama administration attorneys admitting the administration wants to finalize a rescission of the conscience rules but has been delayed because of other business — likely due to the HHS working on implementing the provisions of the ObamaCare law.
That greatly concerns Jonathan Imbody, the Vice President for Government Relations at the Christian Medical Association.
“When the Obama administration announced plans to get rid of the only federal regulation protecting conscience rights in health care, CMA swung into action and organized a coalition of nearly 50 organizations into a new entity, Freedom2Care,” he said in an email to LifeNews.com. “Our groups helped enable healthcare professionals and patients to flood the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with approximately 340,000 regulation-supporting comments, which, by law, HHS officials must review before getting rid of the regulation.”
“Such efforts apparently delayed the administration acting on its threat until now,” Imbody said.

Can President Obama or anyone who supports the rescinding of the conscience rights of medical professionals be merely pro-choice? I do not think so. To force abortion on a doctor or a nurse is to be pro-abortion and that is exactly what President Obama is. From Life News:
