Obama To Doctors, You Will Kill

Another Non-surprise by Obama

Hey folks,

Obama fought against the ban on LATE Term Abortions. Worse yet, he fought against a bill that would PROTECT babies that were failed attempts of late term abortions. Babies born alive and left to die. On March 30, 2001, he argued this on the floor of the Illinois State Senate.

"Number one, whenever we define a preventable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or other elements in the Constitution, what we are saying is, in fact, they are persons entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a,,a child, a nine month old, that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it were accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean it,,it,,would bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow someone to kill a child."

Of course he couldn't be honest and say, "well, I believe life begins whenever the Mother decides it does." Now he says he would limit abortions in late stages of pregnancy, but we know where he stands on this.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to repeal a Bush administration rule that has become a flash point in the debate over a doctor's right not to participate in abortions. The regulation, instituted in the last days of the Bush administration, strengthened job protections for doctors and nurses who refuse to provide a medical service because of moral qualms.

A Health and Human Services official said Friday the administration will publish notice of its intentions early next week, opening a 30-day comment period for advocates on both sides, medical groups and the public.

Time to get active again folks. Start writing, typing and calling and let them know how you feel. This is completely ridicules, however, predictable. Of course Obama, who wants Universal Healthcare, Government controlled Healthcare, wants to tell Doctors, "I do not care if you like it, believe in it, or not, you WILL kill babies." I agree with Tom McClusky.

"It would be a horrible move. These regulations were a long time coming," said Tom McClusky, a vice president at Family Research Council. "What they seek to do is protect patients, nurses, doctors and other health care professionals from being forced to violate their consciences."

Or course the Libs like it.

"I think it's a wonderful step," Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., who co-chairs the Congressional Pro-choice Caucus and has introduced legislation to overturn the regulation, said of Obama's move.

"That rule was actually a poorly drafted last-minute attempt to, I think, restrict health care access and I think it would have had far-reaching and unintended consequences."


{Sigh} Same old rhetoric. Sorry, if I was a Doctor and someone from the Government told me I had to perform an act I believe to be immoral or unethical, I would simply tell them to screw off. Sorry, I would. I hope Doctors, nurses a, and other do the same.

Federal law has long forbidden discrimination against health care professionals who refuse to perform abortions or provide referrals for them on religious or moral grounds. The Obama administration supports those laws, said the HHS official.

The Bush administration's rule adds a requirement that institutions that get federal money certify their compliance with laws protecting the rights of moral objectors. It was intended to block the flow of federal funds to hospitals and other institutions that ignore those rights.

But the Obama administration was concerned that the Bush regulation went too far and could also be used to refuse birth control, family planning services and counseling for vaccines and transfusions.

The White House released a statement saying that Obama supports a "carefully crafted" conscience clause — not Bush's version.

"He believes this issue requires a balance between the rights of providers and the health of women and their families, a balance that the last-minute Bush rule appears to upset," the statement said.

No it didn't. There were those, and still are, that feel that Doctors should be FORCED to perform abortions, even if they object to the practice. Bush's regulation simply took the threat of frivolous Lawsuit in an attempt to force or shut down healthcare facilities that did not kill innocent lives.

The administration will review comments from the public before making a final decision. Options range from repealing the regulation to writing a new one with a narrower scope.

The administration's move was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Yeah OK. That worked out well with the Stimulus Plan. Did it not? But do not let that discourage you. TELL them what you think. Let them know, that YOU know, what this is all about. Let them know that you believe that Doctors should make their own decisions. There are plenty of options out there. Plenty of places people can go to Kill their children. If a Doctor or an Institution decides that they do not believe in killing innocent lives, that should be THEIR choice.
