30 Mar Obama Administration Proposing To Rescind Laws That Protect Health Care Providers
The sanctity of life is being attacked from all sides. From the United Nations to your doctor’s office, treaties, money and new regulations are forcing unwilling participants to participate in the act of abortion.
As you know, tax dollars from the United States are now funding abortions throughout the world because President Obama overturned the Mexico City Policy which previously barred recipients of any U.S. foreign aid from performing or promoting abortion services, as a method of family planning in other countries.
As a follow-up, the Obama Administration is now proposing to rescind the Freedom of Conscience laws that protect health care providers of faith. In other words, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, and hospitals will now be forced to offer abortion services or they could lose their ability to practice in their chosen profession.
We should all be very concerned. Just imagine if you or a family member had trouble finding adequate health care because those who practice medicine in your area had to leave their profession because of these regulations. This could be particularly devastating to rural areas or states with a high concentration of medical practitioners of faith. Both could be severely impacted because of the lack of health care available due to these new laws. Healthcare providers may resign from their professions. Hospitals will be shut down. And future doctors and nurses will choose another profession rather than be forced to participate in the destruction of life.
Currently, Catholic hospitals account for 15-20% of the hospital services provided in this country. Those hospitals might have to cease operations if they had to succumb to new regulations requiring them to offer abortion services.
There is something you can do. The process the Administration is using requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to have a period of time to accept opinions from citizens. They are also required to review these opinions. We only have until April 9, 2009. Please take a moment and send a letter to the HHS asking them not to approve these discriminatory regulations.

From the halls of the United Nations to the hospitals where the newborn babies lay, the Obama Administration is attempting to force us all to accept that taking the life of the unborn is a necessary act. They would like us all to believe that this is the opinion of the majority. We need to tell them that is not true! Please let them know that we will not be a party to this destruction of life! Act now to inform them that families throughout the world care about this issue and will not accept this type of discrimination upon their healthcare providers.
We at United Families International continue to work diligently to protect the life of the unborn. Our work at the international, national and state levels is vitally important to this cause. Please consider donating $25, $35, $50, or $100 TODAY so that we may continue to protect the lives of the unborn.
