Obama’s actions objectionable

Published 11:20 pm Sunday, March 22, 2009

President Obama has moved to lift protection for pro-life health professionals and hospitals against job actions such as loss of employment and frivolous lawsuits for following their moral convictions in refusing to provide abortions.

By law there is a 30-day window to receive public comment on this action. This time period ends April 9.

Please contact the Department of Health and Human Services to express your objection to this action.

If you feel, as I do, that no one should be coerced to perform abortion services against their conscience, please object to the rescission of this protective act. We have only a brief time to respond, so do so today.
