The Right Of Conscience Rule

December 18th, 2008at 09:15pm Posted by Eli

President Bush pretends to be a fan of that which he does not possess:

The Bush administration yesterday granted sweeping new protections to health workers who refuse to provide care that violates their personal beliefs, setting off an intense battle over opponents’ plans to try to repeal the controversial measure.

(…)

The far-reaching regulation cuts off federal funding for any state or local government, hospital, health plan, clinic or other entity that does not accommodate doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other employees who refuse to participate in care they find ethically, morally or religiously objectionable. It was sought by conservative groups, abortion opponents and others to safeguard workers from being fired, disciplined or penalized in other ways.

Hopefully President Obama will roll this back quickly – or, better yet, migrate it to the military and intelligence services…
