CHA Weighs In On Conscience Rgs

The Catholic Health Association has issued the following statement on the new conscience protection regulations issued by the Obama Administration:

The Catholic Health Association (CHA) is pleased to see the clarity of the new Federal Health Care Conscience Protections issued by the Department of Health and Human Services especially in regard to the protection of conscience rights of institutions and individual health care workers, most particularly in regard to abortion. The explicit citing of the legislative protections is appreciated. Also, CHA is gratified to see a commitment to education and a pathway for enforcement. We look forward to the implementation of these regulations.

The CHA again demonstrates how Catholics need not reflexively reject anything that comes from the Obama White House. Kudos to Sister Carol and the rest of the good people at CHA.
