Ever heard of it? Neither have I, until today.
I received a letter from the American Center for Law and Justice, which is an organization dedicated to protecting our religous and constitutional freedoms. On a typical day, the ACLJ is busy fighting the lunatic agenda of the ACLU.
The Hyde-Weldon Amendment, which passed congress and was signed by President Bush last year, protects medical professionals and facilities who refuse to participate in abortion from discrimination and punishment. For example, hospitals which receive federal funding can refuse to participate in infanticide. Not surprisingly, the pro-abortion crowd has issued challenges to the amendment. Apparently, the radical left believes that pro-life medical professionals are constitutionally required to participate in the abortion industry if they receive federal funding.
Help ensure the religious freedom of America's medical professionals - contact your senator and congressman and let them know you support the Hyde-Weldon Amendment.
