Pro-Life Advocates Can Respond to Obama Dumping Abortion Conscience Clause

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- After waiting for the Obama administration to fix an email issue, pro-life advocates can now respond to President Barack Obama's decision to dump the Provider Conscience Clause. That is the regulation President Bush put in place to protect doctors and medical centers not wanting to do abortions.

Three different federal laws provide legal protections for medical professionals. After determining those laws were not always followed by local governments and some medical centers, the Bush administration sought to strengthen them.

The Bush administration put the rules in place to require a written agreement to follow the conscience laws and gave victims better access to federal employment discrimination agencies to consider legal action if their rights were violated.

Relying on claims from leading pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, Obama instructed his administration to overturn the new rules.

The Obama administration published its proposal and provided an email address the public could use to comment on his plan to dump the rule. The email address has not been working since it was first made public last Friday.

That has changed and, now, pro-life advocates can express their opposition to the Obama proposal by emailing proposedrescission@hhs.gov. The deadline for submitting comments is April 9.

Pro-life advocates tell LifeNews.com that the proposed rescission of the Provider Conscience Clause was posted online on Friday but was not printed until today, which left the Obama administration with a published email address not working for days after the initial announcement.

Comments may be submitted electronically on the Web site www.Regulations.gov (by entering 0991-AB49 in the search box).

By mail, one original and two copies of written comments may be sent to: Office of Public Health and Science, Department of Health and Human Services, Attention: Rescission Proposal Comments, Hubert H. Humphrey Building, 200 Independence Ave. SW, Room 716G, Washington, DC 20201.

Despite the problems, several pro-life leaders are working to generate comments against the Obama plan to scrap protections for pro-life doctors and medical centers.

The newly-developed Freedom2Care Coalition will be putting together a web site and asking people to visit it to participate in various ways to help oppose the Obama proposal.

The group will be focusing on Health and Human Services and then expanding to reach members of Congress with opposition to the Obama plan.

Meanwhile, Rep. John Fleming, MD, a Republican congressman from Louisiana, is asking members of Congress to join him in signing a letter that urges President Obama not to rescind the regulation. The letter is expected to be delivered to the president shortly before the comment deadline.

Sen. Tom Coburn, MD, an Oklahoma senator, is circulating a similar letter in the Senate that will be sent to Obama early next week.

You guys are saying how "Obama doesnt value life." Please, how about your President Bush sending troops over to Irag and Iran to kill others and knowing that everything will not be done in order and in truth. Some military personnel are not playing by the standard rules and are doing heinous acts of crime on the iraqi civillians. And where was President Bush's compassion for life when he took his sweet time in aiding the people of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. Some children lost their parents to drowning and former Mrs. Bush even replied that "those people" are better off having to start over. PLEASE! Life.

Hey anonymous, thank you for sharing again. Our issue at hand is the killing of innocent babies inside a mother's womb and the destruction it causes the women that choose abortion. The areas you are concerned about will have to be battled with people concerned with those issues. We are fighting for the unborn babies and their mothers. I don't know if you are familiar with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and if you are interested in truth please google Margaret Sanger quotes and you will see that her intentions were not good at all. Part of the foundation for Planned Parenthood was to exterminate the immigrants and African American race. She was also very linked to people in the field of Eugenics. The African American race is only 14% of the population, but they consist of over 30% of the abortions. Please go to www.blackgenocide.org Dr. Johnny Hunter ( a prominent African American Pastor) calls abortion womb lynching. He states that 3,000 African Americans were lynched in an 80 year period, but more than that are killed within three days time here in the U.S. from abortion. Most abortion clinics are located in the poorer areas and target minorities. Abortion doctors can make up to 6 million dollars a year. There are 2 million couples a year wanting to adopt babies and 1.4 million abortions. Why can't we be pro adoption? Why doesn't the abortion clinics have an adoption agency in them if they are truly pro choice? Thank you for your comments. I appreciate them very much. I will lift you up in prayer. Love, Pam
