Obama To Rescind Conscience Rule on Abortion

President Obama has announced plans to rescind the “conscience rule,” a measure that protects healthcare workers from losing their jobs when they “refuse to participate in care they feel violates their personal, moral or religious beliefs.” In particular, the rule protects those who do not want to participate in “treatments” that destroy unborn human life.

According to the Washington Post, there may still be protection for workers who do not want to participate in abortion. But the problem comes down to how one defines abortion. There are a variety of drugs that prevent unborn babies in their earliest stage of development from implanting in the womb. Pro-choicers regard such treatments as “birth control.” Pro-lifers rightly regard them as abortion, and they do not want their employment to be threatened for refusing to dole out “care” that destroys human life.

The bottom line is this. President Obama is living up to his record as the most pro-abortion politician to ever hold the office of the presidency. This measure is merely the latest example of what we already knew about him before he was elected.

    So much for respecting the views of those who disagree with you. Why would anyone want to force someone to act in a way that violates their conscience. This would be like removing protections for Muslims who dress a certain way or refuse to serve alcohol. That would never fly and there would be lawsuits and media coverage everywhere.

    So much for him being anything but pro-abortion…

    I can’t help but think of former Arizona Cardinals coach Denny Green and his rant after blowing a 20 point lead against the Bears.

    I have taken the liberty of changing the rant for those of us who saw this coming.

    “Obama is what we thought He was; He’s what we thought He would be. He’s exactly what He campaigned to be and who we thought He was! And that’s the way we took the !$%$ field (went to the polling booth to vote against him). Now if you wanna crown Him, then crown Him, but He is who we thought He was, and we let ’em off the hook! (By electing Him)”

    This is the double standard of postmodern thought. So much for tolerance of viewpoints and even for freedom of conscience.

    It just keeps getting worse with this Presidential administration. We’re giving billions to bail out banks and insurance companies; the stock market is lower than it’s been in years, and with every new move by Obama, it lowers more; we’re giving millions to Gaza and other countries, even though we’re broke and getting “broker;” and, to top it all off, Obama just keeps promoting abortions at every turn…every time he gets the chance.

    We need to really pray for our President and our Country.

    “Powers and principalities” are at work.

    David,

    Most of the things you mentioned happened under the past administration’s watch. Giving billions to bail out banks and insurance companies was the Bush administration, and with all the cries of “socialism” about Obama, I still find Bush’s actions funny and ironic. Maybe if we had a better president the last 8 years, Obama wouldn’t have to deal with all these horrendous issues a month and a half after he has been sworn in.

    By the way, please stop with the eschatological rhetoric. It’s old and nothing ever happens…and it’s an embarrassment to Christianity. Thanks amigo

    Two words: Bush’s fault

    Nuff said

    This is all very saddening, but praise God we’re not without hope. I pray God is merciful to change our hearts as a people and open our eyes to the heinousness of this legalized act that we may repent.

    Folks, President Obama is doing what is necessary.

  13. Darius T March 3, 2009 at 10:32 pm #

    John, actually, while Bush does have some fault in this, he and McCain did try to stop it earlier on, but was blocked by the Fannie Mae lobbyists/legislators; you know, Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel.

    Obama does seem to be quite incompetent… I’m honestly amazed how poorly he’s doing so soon into his reign as savior of the world. Most of Europe is already wishing for the Bush years, which is amazing in itself.

    Darius,

    Also, we were told that Obama was going to fix everything. He hasnt. He has made it worse. But, they have a scapegoat that they can blame….Bush! After all, they’ll say that things were WORSE than they thought. Things are gonna take more time. We dont know if it can be fixed….after all, Bush messed it all up so bad.

    lol.

    Everything that Obama does just seems to worsen things, and not just financially, either.
