A Victory for the Forces of Evil!Conscience Rights Defeated!

By Citizens for a Pro-Life Society Editors

The Coburn conscience protection amendment was voted down by a margin of 41-56. The failure to pass this legislation now leaves the door open for the Obama Administration to rescind the law by executive order and force health workers to compromise their moral convictions.

The Catholic league writes:

April 3, 2009 an amendment introduced by Sen. Tom Coburn to protect the conscience of patients and health care providers was defeated by a vote of 56-41. The amendment was proposed in light of the Obama administration’s plans to rescind the rule, which was issued in December by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), that protects the right of health care workers at federally- funded facilities to refuse to perform or be involved in medical procedures that violate their consciences.


Catholic League President, Bill Donohue,
spoke to this issue:

“The failure of the administration and the Senate to protect freedom of conscience is an outrageous violation of human rights and a slap in the face to Catholics and other people of faith. No one in the health care field should ever be compelled by law to perform or assist in a procedure that violates his conscience. This should be an elementary right, yet there are those who want to trespass on it.

Francis Cardinal George“Francis Cardinal George, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has called upon Catholics to let the government know that conscience protections are fundamental rights of Americans. He expressed concern that reversal of the current rule ‘would be the first step in moving our country from democracy to despotism.’

“Failure to protect the right of conscience, combined with overturning the Mexico City Policy, supporting the United Nations Population Fund, funding embryonic stem cell research and nominating radical abortion rights supporter Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be the Secretary of HHS, sends the message to Catholics that their concerns are not important.

“We implore all lawmakers to reconsider this issue with an eye toward restoring the conscience rights of health care workers.”





We are being enslaved by a tyrannical government! What are we, stupid?
It is Time to Get Tough!!!


Lawmakers are not listening to their constituants. Is it more self-interest serving to listen to the special interest who have money? Kick the sleaze bags out of office!

Following is a list of the 56 cowardly criminals who voted to eliminate freedom of religion in this country! Get them out of office! Put them in prison! They have attempted to enslave us all by enslaving medical personnel first.
