Liberty Counsel Files Public Comment for Conscience Regulation to Protect Healthcare Providers

Apr 7, 2009

Liberty Counsel filed a public comment with the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) opposing the repeal of the Provider Conscience Regulation (73 FR 50274) which has been proposed by President Barack Obama. If repealed, healthcare providers could be forced to participate in abortion and other ethically controversial practices in violation of their moral or religious beliefs at the risk of losing their jobs or board certifications.

HHS is accepting public comments until April 9. HHS will post all of the comments online.
