You can't say we did not warn you...the first shot...

The Obama administration is moving to rescind a federal rule that reinforced protections for medical providers who refuse to perform abortions or other procedures on moral grounds, an official said Friday.

A Health and Human Services official said the administration will publish notice of its intentions early next week, and open a 30-day comment period for advocates, medical groups and the public. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official notice has not been completed.

Go to CNS for the whole story.

I wonder where all of the Catholics for Obama stand on this one? Do they support it (as they support the great leader) or do they find this objectionable that those who claim to be the biggest supporters of choice, refuse choice to others?

Can you give me some examples of how the existing laws protecting the right of health care professionals from participating in abortions was insuffient, making these new regulations necessary?
