Christian doctors' group protests rolling back conscience rule
An organization of Christian physicians argued against an impending rollback of a federal rule allowing healthcare workers to refuse to provide certain reproductive services, saying it's discriminatory. Under the rule, workers in healthcare settings can refuse to provide services, information, or advice to patients on subjects such as contraception, family planning, blood transfusions, and even vaccine counseling if they are morally against it. The Obama administration is expected to reverse the rule shortly.
