Bishop: Human rights threatened by Obama administration proposal
March 30, 2009
The chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, Bishop William Murphy of Rockville Centre, calls the Obama administration’s proposal to rescind conscience-protection regulations a threat to human rights. “To take back the regulations raises a real issue,” he says, “because the statutes are intended to protect human rights-- rights of conscience and rights of freedom of religion.”
