Institute Supports Conscience Rules in HealthcareMarch 28, 2018 |
by Lacey McNiel
First Liberty Institute attorneys today submitted public comments on behalf of several religious ministries in support of new United States Health and Human Services (“HHS”) guidelines that ensure the protection of conscience rights for health care professionals.
“Without conscience protections, health care professionals across America risk discrimination for refusing to perform, facilitate, or refer for procedures that they believe are unethical,” said Stephanie Taub, Senior Counsel. “The proposed HHS rules will serve to protect the rights of healthcare professionals to uphold the tenets of the Hippocratic Oath and the ethical integrity of the medical profession.”
