House Democrat Introduces Bill to Completely Eliminate HHS's New Conscience Rights Division

Feb 28, 2018 Lauretta Brown

Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) introduced a bill Tuesday called “Eliminating the HHS Discrimination Division of 2018” which would get rid of the newly created Conscience and Religious Freedom Division within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)......claiming that the division is discriminatory because it allows medical providers to “determine a patient’s care based on their personal religious beliefs.”  “A patient’s health and wellness should always come first and the Trump Administration has no business facilitating discrimination and creating barriers for medically necessary health care that will ultimately harm patient health and endanger lives,”
“This Division was created with the sole purpose of allowing hospitals, doctors, nurses, and even administrative staff to determine a patient’s care based on their personal religious beliefs, not on what is best for the patient,” she claimed. “I am proud to introduce this legislation to ensure that every American, regardless of their gender identity, reproductive health care choices, or need for any type of medical care, has access to quality, comprehensive health care.”
Grisham’s bill has been endorsed by the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the National Women’s Law Center, the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico, Equality New Mexico, the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, the New Mexico Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and the National Center for Transgender Equality............However, members of Congress and some medical providers have praised the new division, citing instances of discrimination against religious medical providers under the Obama administration..........“Nuns have been forced to put aside their lives of service of the elderly and sit and have to go to court humbly requesting that they not be required to pay for practices that end the lives of children,” he said. .........To Read More....
My Take - It always amazes me how people who are trying to destroy people's rights do so by claiming they're protecting their rights.  The same is true when the issue is about abortion.  They call it a woman's right to good health care when it's really about murdering children.  One thing is clear -  if these groups are for it, it's an automatic you should be against it without doing one iota of research.

  • American Civil Liberties Union
  • Planned Parenthood Federation of America
  • National Women’s Law Center
  • American Civil Liberties
  • Union of New Mexico, Equality New Mexico
  • Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico
  • New Mexico Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice,
  • National Center for Transgender Equality
Because if these groups are for something it's bound to be something that takes away liberty, undermines the Constitution by eliminating personal rights guaranteed in the Constitution and supports murdering the unborn.
