Cardinal urges Congress to support Health Care Conscience Rights Act

Catholic World News - March 12, 2013

The chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities has called upon members of the House of Representatives to support the Health Care Conscience Rights Act, introduced on March 5 by Rep. Diane Black (R-TN).

“Doctors, nurses and other health professionals, as well, have reason today to fear that their ability to serve others in accord with their values will not be well defended in our nation’s laws or in our judicial system,” said Cardinal Seán O’Malley in a letter dated March 8 and released on March 11. “Providers of health care, as well as those who offer or purchase insurance, should not face an unacceptable choice between preserving their religious and moral integrity or participating in our health care system.”
