- United States
- I despise the left wing liberal attempts to change America. I support FREEDOM, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, religious freedom and protecting the rights of Americans, including the unborn. Close the border, round up illegals and send them home. Welcome them back with a green card. I believe in preserving the visions of our founding fathers which did not include Socialism or Sharia Law. This IS STILL America.....at least for now.

The Conscience Clause for Health Care Workers
The Obama Administration plans to overturn the Conscience Clause that was put into effect by the Bush Administration. This clause was mainly to protect health care workers from being forced to perform abortions (but included other medical procedures such as sex change operations)that they object to on moral grounds.
Sadly, there ARE abortion clinics that women could utilize, but it seems that is not enough for Obama. He stands firm that all doctors requested to perform an abortion should be REQUIRED by law to do it. Never mind the religious and moral beliefs held by the physician.
Since when did the government become the ruling conscience? What right do they have to DICTATE, yes DICTATE to doctors that they must perform procedures that violate their religious and moral standards?
This does not only affect Christian doctors....but would affect Muslim doctors as well. It would seem this is one of two things that Muslims and Christian conservatives have in common is their beliefs against abortion.
I know that if I were a doctor and was told that I must perform these procedures on demand....I would leave the medical field even if it meant working at McDonald's for the rest of my life. In fact, I would go to jail before anyone forced me to perform an abortion.
This will go much deeper than abortion. It could apply to giving an 11 year old girl birth control without parental consent or knowledge. As a mother, I would want to know that my young child was seeking out birth control. Then there are the sex change operations. How can you force a doctor to do this? Why would you even want to force a doctor to do it? There are many other doctors out there who have no issue with performing these kinds of procedures, why make someone who has a moral objection do it?
In the very near future all health care will be under government control. The government will dictate to YOU and YOUR DOCTOR what is best for YOU. Your doctor will have no choice but to follow their directions because, after all, he will then be a government employee.
This is not even socialism...it is communism.
