Cardinal George video on health care conscience protections

Breaking news late this afternoon: The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued this video of Cardinal Francis E. George, USCCB president, urging U.S. Catholics to help protect the conscience rights of health care workers:

According to a story we ran last week, citizens have until April 9 to comment on newly proposed Obama administration regulations that would rescind a Bush administration regulation giving federal protection to the conscience rights of health care providers.

  1. Oh we need more than this! All faith MUST ban together as one unit to stop the FOCA, IT MUST BE PART OF EVERY PRIEST HOMILY, IN
    EVERY PARISH IN THE UNITED STATES, UNTIL THIS ACT IS BROUGHT DOWN, THEM WE STILL CANNOT LET DOWN THE GUARD, WHY! IF OBAMA CAN NOT GET THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR HE WILL DO IT THROUGH THE BACK DOOR. AND THIS GOES FOR ALL THE FAITH, ALL MINSTERS, AND DONE NOW, AFTER MARCH IT WILL BE TO LATE. THEN GOD HELP US, IF HE
    HAS NOT TURNED HIS BACK ON US ALREADY. OBAMA, WAS CLEAR ON HIS VIEWS ON ABORTION, OVER HALF OF THIS COUNTRY DID NOT PAY ATTENION!

  2. Dear Mr. President,
    I write to plea with you. The U.S. government must not dictate to her citizens they by law must do what is morally evil and so reprehensible to them. I am speaking in reference to FOCA and denying the free of conscience of doctors and nurses to refuse assisting in aborting human embyros. This proposed law is something the old-style soviets would impose upon her citizens. Sincerely, Fr. Dan Toof

  3. Dear Mr. President,
    This country is a beacon to the entire world with the primary attraction being freedom.If you enact FOCA as law you send the message that we are free as long as we think like this or that minority group that has a very narrow agenda.I prayerfully ask that you not add to the 40+million already killed .How many scietists, econimists,humanitarians,doctors ,and teachers have we already sacrificed for the convenience of abortion?The citizens put you in office for CHANGE so please make a moral change in the direction of Freedom of Conscience. Respectfully Lawrence C.Barbour

  4. Please keep our conscience protections for health care workers in place. Do not allow a change that take freedom away from doctors and nurses that refuse abortion. It will hurt us all as our freedom of conscience gets chipped away.

    To:Health & Human Services & President Obama
