Cardinal George Urges Catholics to Tell Administration: Keep Conscience Protections for Health Care Workers

Lately it seems that every time we turn around, there is another assault on Christian values. Yet we must not grow battle weary.

The time is now to let the Obama Administration know that you support conscience clauses for health care workers.

Cardinal George of Chicago had a half-hour meeting with President Obama this week. Details of what they talked about have not been released.  

But also this week, we see this video and web page that the Cardinal released through the US Bishops' website. The same link will enable you to send your own message in favor of keeping conscience laws in place. 

Many people in pro-life work see the reduction of conscience laws as another way of advancing abortion on demand, and forcing conscientious objectors to assist at abortions or lose their jobs.  To call the White House comment line, phone 202-456-1111.

Let your voice be heard, and pass the word!
