HHS Rescission Document ID has changed!!!

April 6, 2009

Just took a look at the site to see if any comments are available yet for viewing, and discovered that the ID number has changed! Previous ID was HHS_FRDOC_0001-0050, but now you need to do your search for HHS-OPHS-2009-0001-0001.

 Theoretically, they should have migrated all comments from the original document’s ID to the new number, but I would want to make sure earlier comments didn’t get lost. Please consider re-submitting yours “just in case”!

    I support the recision of the bush regulation that expanded the rules for objecting to providing legal and necessary health care. There are sufficient protections for conscience objections. The bush rules essentially allow anyone to block the provision of legal and necessary abortions. It is intended to provide yet more roadblocks and expense to those who seek legal, safe and effective abortions.

    Fortunately with the election of President Ob ama we are well along to eliminating some of the more bizarre actions of the bush administration, such as planting uneducated religious fanatics in government agencies to edit and revise the writings of government scientists.

    We live in a democracy, which means government of ALL the people, by ALL the people. For those who prefer a theocracy, move to Saudia Arabia. And bring your burka.

      Thank you, RCharles, for your comment. Obviously, I disagree quite strongly with your view, but I am publishing it as an invitation to other readers to send in their comments. My schedule today is too full to provide more details now, but I did want to reply to your comment at least a little bit. If you look at many of the resources (e.g., the press package and the FAQs from Freedom2Care) noted on this blog, you will see I am not the only person who supports the regulation that enforces the conscience protection laws that have been in place for more than three decades. Those resources provide plenty of reasons why the rule should not be rescinded. The rule does not stop abortion; instead, it enforces protection of those who do not want to participate in such morally objectionable actions.

      You will be in my prayers as I continue to ask God to give President Obama the grace and light to be converted to a way of thinking that includes true concern for ALL the people of the United States, including the unborn who so often are not given the “choice” to live or to die. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and anesthesiologists also deserve the “choice” to not participate in morally objectionable actions. And patients, like you and me, deserve the “choice” to be cared for by medical personnel and institutions that hold their same values. Not protecting the right of conscience will lead to great losses of highly qualified medical personnel and institutions that serve a wide variety of people. Those losses would severely reduce the availability and quality of health care, while simultaneously increasing the expenses, throughout our nation. None of us want that to happen.

      Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and Protectress of the Unborn, pray for us!
