WASHINGTON (March 8, 2013) — Do you agree that no American should be forced to participate in providing abortions?
If so, please join the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of state right-to-life organizations, in urging members of the U.S. House of Representatives to add their names as co-sponsors of comprehensive new federal legislation to protect the conscience rights of pro-life Americans, including health care providers.
The legislation, the Health Care Conscience Rights Act (H.R. 940), is a new and comprehensive approach to protection of the conscience rights of pro-life Americans, which are under assault from the Obama Administration, many state and local government officials, and from pro-abortion activist organizations and their attorneys.
The new bill would amend the Obamacare law so that no American would be forced to sponsor or purchase health insurance that includes abortion or other procedures or drugs that violate their religious or moral convictions. It would prohibit any level of government — federal, state, or local — from penalizing health care providers (including doctors, nurses, and insurers) for refusing to participate in providing abortions. Finally, it would give pro-life individuals and institutions the right to go to court when their conscience rights are violated.
