The Trump administration appears to be advancing certain freedoms quite reliably.
Thanks to the Trump admin, the baby killers are getting nervous.
Apparently Planned parenthood folks are so far gone in their willingness to snuff out human life, they would deny practicing physicians the ability to conscientiously object. Objecting to new HHS rules PP is going into conniptions:
“Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is encouraging their supporters to tell the Department of Health Human Services (HHS) that a proposed rule to strengthen conscience protections for healthcare providers is “dangerous” and “encourages discrimination.” The rule requires health care providers to notify their employees of protections against religious discrimination on job applications and employee manuals. The rule also allows the HHS Office of Civil Rights (OCR) to enforce protections for religious medical providers.”
‘Choice’ apparently has a different meaning to the child hunters. Until government is used to directly control our lives (sans the personal choice of fetal sepaku), the leftist monsters won’t be happy.
Its a good sign of personal conscience protections from a government realigning itself with the constitution. Other health care fields might also benefit from such positive efforts. I wonder if this could be re-litigated?
***Side note to Chad Livengood: Both bills were written to create a protected classin Michigan, NOTprohibit discrimination. I will be more than happy to cite numerous examples in Kentucky, New Mexico, Oregon ,Texas and New York (just for starters) to prove you otherwise. I shouldn’t have to remind you that you are a reporter, not an editorial page writer.***
The lame duck legislature has nine more days (including today) in which it could seriously harm Michigan.
One of the items which has ZERO business being considered, is the elevation of a dangerous behavior to ‘protected class’ status. Making every landlord, business owner, or boss, the potential target of people with a (previously diagnosable) mental condition. Incoming Michigan State Rep Todd Courser, in an email newsletter cautions supporters to NOT let their current Reps off the hook. He writes:
A Lipstick Makeover…
The Effort by the GOP to wrap this Expansion of Elliott Larsen in some weak religious exemption is akin to taking a Cheap Pig and Slapping a Cheap Lipstick Makeover on it; it is still a pig and it still has cheap lipstick on it. This is the granting of protected class status to the LGBT community and in doing so, it kills religious liberty and freedom of speech! Don’t be fooled…and don’t let your rep off the hook for standing SILENT as this rolls through the House. Ask them where their press releases on this issue are…encourage them to stand against this rogue action by the Republican Speaker who has been paid a small fortune and is partnering with the LGBT activists to destroy religious liberty and freedom of speech!
If this expansion to Elliott Larsen passes it will institutionalize discrimination against Christians and other faiths and make freedom of religion and freedom of speech subservient to the wishes of the homosexual lobby.
Even with the pretend religious exemptions being promised by a paid-in-advance speaker of the house, it’s still a raw deal.
Fact of the matter, is that the THREAT of a lawsuit based on such characteristics as personal choice and preference, is an affront to freedom of association and speech. It hardly matters if one can exempt themselves based on their religious practice or beliefs if the must first stand before a judge and make that exclamation. It still costs time, and money, and hardship.
