Tonight we'll talk with a pro-life ob-gyn who says Obama intends to force physicians to perform abortions. The Obama Administration is quietly moving to test Catholic institutions with plans to rescind the US Department of Health and Human Service’s Conscience regulation – a regulation that protects healthcare workers against pressure or intimidation to perform medical procedures that go against their conscience such as abortion or euthanasia. “The Notre Dame debate surrounding President Obama’s invitation to deliver the commencement address is only the tip of the iceberg for those in the Catholic faith," says Dr. Joe DeCook, retired Ob-Gyn and vice president of AAPLOG, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists. "The administration’s new efforts to overturn the HHS regulation could mandate practices such as abortion or shut down many of the 557 Catholic hospitals around the country that treat millions of US hospital patients. The Obama administration has opened the HHS regulation – also known as “conscience clause” – for public comment until April 9, 2009.
