House passes bill to protect pro-life health care workers

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Bowman regarding the House’s passage Wednesday of the Conscience Protection Act, which next needs to pass the Senate:

“Health professionals should always have the freedom—and indeed, have a right—not to be forced to perform abortions. In addition, every woman should be free to choose a doctor who values the life of her baby. Because the Obama administration has violated pro-life conscience laws so that now even churches, in many instances, must pay for abortion insurance, this bill has become necessary. The House was right to pass this bill to protect the freedom of Americans to practice and choose pro-life health care, and we hope the Senate will take it up as well.”
