Scalise Applauds Trump Admin Action on Conscience Protection
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement after the Department of Health and Human Services announced plans to enforce conscience protections for health care workers:
"Our nation was founded upon the principles of religious liberty. It is against the very moral foundation of America to force health care workers to participate in procedures that violate their conscience, particularly the abhorrent practices of abortion and assisted suicide. Likewise, organizations like churches should not be coerced into providing insurance coverage for these procedures. Life is sacred and must be protected. I applaud the Trump Administration’s determination to protect human life and preserve conscience rights for all Americans."
