Obama is overturning abortion conscience rules

This is from the life news site:

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The White House quietly announced on Friday that President Barack Obama is starting the process of overturning protections President Bush put in place to make sure medical staff and centers are not forced to do abortions. The move is the latest that will add to Obama's growing pro-abortion record.

Existing federal laws already make it so doctors and hospitals are not required to perform abortions. Because those laws aren't always followed, the Bush administration added additional protections.

*********

This is a really important prayer intention, that no medical personnel will be forced to participate in abortions against their conscience.

So much for "choice." The deep hypocrisy of the pro-abortion movement is getting more and more evident. The real agenda is to force abortion as much as possible.

It is quite disturbing. Some measures and laws have been taking place in California, last year I believe. When president Bush signed this in, we were happy but wondered how long it would be before it was overturned.
If FOCA isn't passed all at once, I wonder if this can be considered the F in the FOCA?

The White House website is supposed to have a place where "we, the People" can comment on proposed legislation. If this is a Presidential action and not "legislation," it may not fall under the category that would allow it to be up for comment (a convenient get-around that would be). I am going to see if I can find something on whitehouse.gov now...
Be sure to send in your FOCA postcards and red envelopes...
