Urgent Action Needed on Conscience Protection

Here is a video on a very important matter from Cardinal George, President of the USCCB.

The USCCB Conscience Protection website has this to say:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is inviting public comment on a proposal to rescind an important federal regulation issued in December. The regulation implements and enforces three federal laws protecting the conscience rights of health care providers, especially those at risk of being discriminated against because of their moral or religious objection to abortion.
The Catholic community must speak out to protect Catholic doctors, nurses and hospitals.
If you would like to send an email to the Department of Health and Human Services, you can go to this page of the USCCB website. The email is mostly composed for you; you can add your own thoughts if you would like. When you are done, it will be emailed to HHS. This is fast and easy to do, so I URGE you to take a moment now and do it!
