Doctors are forecasting the closure of hospitals and clinics across
America and a mass migration of physicians and their assistances to
other careers should the Obama administration succeed in its attempt to
overrule their rights of conscience.
"Thousands of conscientious and compassionate physicians, nurses,
hospitals and clinics currently serve poor women and those who live in
medically underserved areas," said David Stevens, CEO of the Christian
Medical Association today.
"Many of these professionals and institutions are motivated and guided
by longstanding Hippocratic ethics and biblical principles that preclude
participation in abortion and other controversial procedures. Infringing
on their right to practice medicine according to these life-affirming
ethical standards will force them to leave the profession and to shut
down the hospitals and clinics," he warned.
"The fundamental premise of liberalism is the moral incapacity
of the American people." ~ Alan Keyes
