President Obama Starts Process of Removing Doctors' Protections on Abortions

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The White House quietly announced on Friday that President Barack Obama is starting the process of overturning protections President Bush put in place to make sure medical staff and centers are not forced to do abortions. The move is the latest that will add to Obama's growing pro-abortion record.

The Bush conscience rules were intended to educate those in the medical field as well as the general public about the rights of medical personnel to treat their patients in accordance with their conscience free from discrimination or intimidation.

They also give health care professionals recourse to the HHS Office of Civil Rights and a way to press charges in the event they experience discrimination."

There are two sides to every argument and is magnified in the area of abortion-pro-lifers fight adamently for the unborn and pro-choicers fight adamently to protect the rights of the mom. Each side is entitled-removing the right and wrong aspect for a moment-to have their opinion. When GW was in office, he wanted to ensure that if a medical facility or health care provider didn't want to do abortions, they were entitled to act according to their conscience. They could choose-and isn't that-again barring the right/wrong aspect for a moment-what America is about?

The current administration under BA wants to change that. For once in history, we are coming to a point where there won't be two sides to the arguement. You can say you are pro-life, but if you are a health care provider or health care facility, it won't matter. If BA has his way, no matter what your opinion is, you will no longer have a choice. You will no longer be able to act on your own will or according to your conscience. You would be forced to provide abortions or be shut down.

Is this what "change" is about-removing the freedom to have an opinion even if it is different? Is this what "yes, we can" meant all along-yes, I can do what I want but you can't? When you make an issue so hotly debated as abortion one sided by law, that reeks of removing a fundamental freedom.

And that, is just wrong.
