Obama Cares Not for Conscience of America

By Rick Pearcey • March 9, 2009, 05:41 PM

Jake Jones examines a conscience.

This past week, Pres. Obama’s administration published its official request to rescind the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regulation that clarifies that health care professionals have a right to conscience and should not be forced to participate in aborting a baby, or other medical services, that offend their moral convictions.

This is of great concern for Christians across the country. Not only because of the reversal of the ‘rights of conscience’ clause, but because Obama has chosen Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services. She is a high profile supporter of abortion and has strong ties to pro-abortion organizations.

"President Obama is working to deprive the country of medical professionals who use their consciences when treating their patients," said Heartbeat International President Peggy Hartshorn, Ph.D. "Women, babies, and families deserve conscientious health care by doctors who believe in the sanctity of human life. It is wrong for the U.S. government to condemn doctors who follow the Hippocratic principle of 'do no harm'. This is un-American."
