Conscience Protection Act


 016.jpg

Tomorrow, July 13, 2016, or later in the week, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Conscience Protection Act.  This law is very much needed to counter a growing number of states that are making health care providers and employers  participate in providing abortions. 

Nobody should be forced to participate in the brutal act of killing an unborn child.  But in California and New York, state agencies are forcing health plans to cover all abortions.  In Washington state, a court has ruled that public hospitals must provide abortions if they provide maternity care.  The Obama Administration is refusing to enforce the Weldon Amendment, a federal law that prohibits state governments from issuing such abortion mandates.


I found this information on the National Right to Life website. 

UPDATE:  Today, July 13, 2016, the House passed this bill.  It will now go to the Senate for approval, and then on to the president for his signature. Pray for him because he has said he will veto the legislation.

Today, speakers called for President Obama to uphold the words he spoke at Notre Dame in 2009, when he said that we should ‘honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion’.
