Trump To Protect US Health Workers Who Oppose Abortion

President Trump Might Offer Protection To Doctors Who Don't Want To Perform Abortions Or Serve Transgender Patients Trump plan would make it safe for federal workers to object to performing abortions, transgender treatment

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said on Thursday it will create a division within its Office of Civil Rights to give it "the focus it needs to more vigorously and effectively enforce existing laws protecting the rights of conscience and religious freedom". "Since 2008 until the election in 2016, we received 10 conscience complaints". In 2009, Cathy Cenzon-DeCarlo, a nurse at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY, was forced to assist in an abortion or face disciplinary action.

"Despite clearly communicating her moral objection to assisting with abortions as a nurse, Cathy's employer coerced her to participate in an abortion procedure that took the life of a vulnerable unborn child", Hartzler said Thursday, citing similar cases in IL and New Jersey.

"Whatever your thoughts about the legality of abortion. presidents have spoken year after year. that people's rights must be [respected] in matters of life and death", including assisted suicide, Severino said.

Acting Secretary Eric Hargan, at left, speaks with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy at a news conference announcing a new division on Conscience and Religious Freedom at the Department of Health and Human Services January 18, 2018. "Medical students too have learned to do procedures that violate their consciences".

Garcia said in a phone interview that she worries cases of denied or delayed care could multiply, describing several past controversies. "I never dreamed that my commitment to serving women and their children would [prevent my getting a job]", she said.

Reaction to the new division was mixed.

"No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one's deepest moral or religious convictions", said HHS Office for Civil Rights Director Roger Severino in a statement, but civil rights activists raised concerns that such policies will lead to worsened discrimination.

Harrisburg, Pa., shooting leaves United States marshal dead, police officers wounded
The identity of the shooter who attacked York and Harrisburg police officers and killed a USA marshal is still unknown. Marshals Service says 45-year-old Christopher David Hill died Thursday morning at a hospital in Harrisburg.


"AAPLOG members now have someone to turn to when pressured to kill human beings or else be forced out of medical practice".

"For more than 40 years, federal law has protected the conscience rights of all Americans in the context of health care", said Melanie Israel, a research associate for the Heritage Foundation, in a statement emailed to LifeZette.

Dana Singiser, vice president of public policy and government affairs for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement the proposal would be "incredibly unsafe, and prevent women and transgender people from getting the care they need". "That choice was made the moment they became physicians", she said.

In contrast to the Trump administration proposal, the Obama administration issued a rule interpreting the provision barring sex discrimination under Obamacare to bar medical providers from discriminating against transgender patients or women who have had abortions. The Wall Street Journal, Politico and NPR also have stories.

"At least in my circles and experience, this isn't a need that healthcare providers have felt like they had".

Protections in place under former President George W. Bush that covered workers who objected, on moral grounds, to performing abortions and certain other services, were rolled back by the Obama administration, a move highly criticized by President Trump. In 2017, the administration issued new rules allowing exemptions for more employers, including for-profit businesses, from providing no-cost contraceptive coverage through their health insurance plans. "Trump, Pence, and Trump's appointees have tried time and again to establish blatantly bigoted policies that harm transgender and gender non-conforming Americans, and history will neither forget nor forgive this Administration's attacks on its own people".

Unsurprisingly, HHS did not respond to the outlet's repeated requests for comment.
