Losing our freedom under Obama

There are civil rights laws that "declare that American tax dollars will not fund programs in which helathcare professionals are fired, penalized or otherwise subjected to discrimination because of their ethical stance related to abortion and other morally controversial issues."

The Obama administration is moving to over turn this protection. See Freedom2Care.

Contrary to what some might have you believe, Freedom of Religion is not just about freedom to worship privately. It is about not being forced by the government to violate ones' deepest religious convictions. Our country began when settlers fled from a government which tried to force people to violate their religious convictions. They were looking for freedom. The Obama administration is trying to take that freedom away!

When medical professionals are forced to violate their religious convictions on controversial ethical issues like abortion, or face the loss of their careers, we no longer have Freedom of Religion in America.
