Affirmative Action for Abortions?

The Obama administration announced this on Friday night because it's least likely to draw unwanted attention:

Washington D.C., Feb 27, 2009 / 06:10 pm (CNA).- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is preparing to rescind regulations which made explicit the existing legal protections for medical workers who object to cooperating in abortions. The preparations have led one Republican congressman to charge President Obama’s administration with trying to implement the Freedom of Choice act “incrementally.”

On Friday the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB)announced that it was reviewing a proposal to lift the Department of Health and Human Service’s (HHS) regulation. The move is the first step toward reversing the policy.

I'm sure many of you saw The Reader. Well I wonder what "THe Readers" law school seminar would think about a government that would FORCE a professional (say a nurse, played by winsome Kate Winslet) to assist in a procedure she thought was tanatamount to murder? Heck, one of The Reader's cohorts screamed that the women should have committed suicide rather than take jobs a a guard! What kind of government to we have? And the Left calls conservatives fascists??!!!
