Health proposal rankles Democrats
AP/Yahoo News, July 17, 2008
Democratic lawmakers say that the Bush administration is considering a new federal rule that would withhold government funding from healthcare providers and organizations that refuse to hire workers who won't perform abortions or provide emergency contraception. Federal law already prohibits discriminating against any individual or institution that refuses to perform abortions or provide a referral for one, but the problem is that the document defines abortion as including the administration of certain contraceptives, lawmakers say.
