Conscience Amendment Under Fire

Zenit reports:

A lawsuit planned by pro-abortionist activists against a conscience-protection provision “is the height of hypocrisy,” says a U.S. bishops’ aide.

A pro-abortion association whose members include Planned Parenthood announced plans Monday to file a federal lawsuit against the pro-life conscience protection in the newly enacted federal spending bill, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005.

The National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) plans to attack the provision, known as the Hyde-Weldon Conscience Protection Amendment, which prohibits discrimination against health care providers who choose not to provide or participate in abortions. President George Bush signed the measure into law last week.

“This lawsuit is the height of hypocrisy: a ‘pro-choice’ group is suing so that health care providers will have no choice but to participate in abortion,” said Cathy Cleaver Ruse, spokeswoman for the U.S. bishops’ Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities.

Lawsuit Against Conscience Protection Assailed as Hypocrisy

I knew they were going to do this. Plannedparenthood was freaking out after that was signed into law(at which I was thrilled),but, unfortunately they stated that they would fight this tooth and nail(much to my dismay,although not surprised).I would encourage people to check the pro-abort sites frequently in case there is something you can do in your community to counteract the evil they put out.God Bless

Maybe this kind of public attention brought to their fanaticism is precisely what we need to shake people from their complacency and realize what is at stake.

I hope you are right. I think the more shrill their arguments become, the more mainstream America will reject them. It IS the ultimate irony that the proponents of “choice” want to restrict choice to one option.

They should change their motto to;“Pro-No Choice…It’s our Law.” :frowning:

No…a better name would be “Heartless, Godless, Murdering, Sadist Asses, who care about no one but #1

How about Baal? Wasn’t that the one that required child sacrifice?

No doubt the financial implications are at the top of the proabort groups’ concerns. I only hope the utter hypocrisy of this suit is well publicized.

We can’t count on the media. We have to do it ourselves. Letters to the editor and phone call to secular radio call-in shows are in order – lots of them!
