If you care about receiving good health care and don't want your tax dollars to go toward funding abortion and other procedures that go against a doctor's conscience, please take a minute to send a short email asking to keep the Provider Conscience Clause to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read more about my thoughts on this in a previous blog post here. Thanks and God bless you all!
Below is the email I sent.
Please Keep The Provider Conscience Clause
Dear Mr. or Ms.,
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my email. I am writing because I read that President Obama plans to rescind the Provider Conscience Clause. This news is very concerning to me for several reasons. I believe that forcing doctors to act against their conscience is not right and will greatly damage the quality of health care in America. Our tax money could be much better spent if used to fund pregnancy centers and charities that help innocent babies, young parents and parents-to-be. I ask that you consider they great harm this decision to rescind the Provider Conscience Clause would cause hundreds of thousands of babies, parents and the entire nation. Abortion effects all of us, and when I go to the doctor I want to know that he or she is working to heal me, work in my best interest, and believes in the work he or she is doing. If doctors don't believe in what they are doing, how can we expect them to do an adequate job? If doctors are forced to do operations that go against their conscience, many good doctors will retire or find a new profession, and many who would make great doctors will never even enter the profession. Not only will we lose doctors, but it would also likely lead to several hospitals closing. I ask that you and those in charge of making a decision about this issue keep these things in mind. Once again, thank you for your time and may God bless you and guide you.
