Due to years of the Obama administration’s pro-abortion policies and Oregon’s own pro-abortion governor, the right of medical professionals to not participate in abortions has been a hot issue. Under current law, this right is not protected.
There have been recent attempts at the federal level to strengthen the conscience rights of Americans, specifically those who work in health care. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a new rule to do so. As of the time of this writing, however, it has not taken effect. Unsuccessful efforts were also made to include conscience rights protections in a congressional budget deal.
A third attempt to accomplish this goal is in the form of H.R. 644, the Conscience Protection Act. This bill would protect medical professionals from being forced to violate their consciences by participating in abortions. In light of Oregon’s new law expanding abortion, this bill is even more critical.
For more information on conscience protections, see article on this page.
Please take a moment to contact your member of Congress and ask them to vote for H.S. 644. You can do so at www.ortl.org/actionalerts.
