Hippocratic OathThe bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. are finally agreeing it's okay for Americans to have a conscience.

There are over two dozen statutes on the books passed by Congress designed to protect the conscience rights of people of faith but Carol Tobias of the National Right to Life Committee says her organization regularly fielded calls from medical professionals forced to participate in abortions.

“We had the state of California trying to tell insurance companies that they had to cover abortion services,” she recalls. “All of this violated federal law but the Obama administration refused to enforce the law and was looking the other way --- and actually kind of, you know, under the table encouraging these kinds of actions.”

There are those who believe in the rule of law, however, and it took a change in the White House for people to comb through the legal books.  

“They know what the 25 statutes are,” Tobias says of the Trump administration. “They know what the requirements are, and they are now going to enforce them and expect anybody affected to comply.”
