Protect the Rights of Health Care Workers

from the Susan B. Anthony List
For the past few weeks we have been fighting an uphill battle to protect the right of conscience, currently under attack by the Obama Administration, but now we have a chance to make a difference in the U.S. Senate!
Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has proposed an amendment in the Senate that would protect the right of conscience for health care workers! The Senate is scheduled to vote on this amendment TOMORROW afternoon.
Contact your Senators today and tell them to vote YES on the conscience protection amendment!
This amendment is crucial in our fight to protect doctors and nurses around the country from being discriminated against for refusing to participate in abortions and other medical procedures that violate their conscience.
Sadly we have already seen cases of discrimination. For example in 2008 a nurse was forced to leave two different hospitals because she refused to sign a form pledging to assist in abortions.
Please act NOW and tell your Senators to vote YES on Senator Coburn’s amendment.
