Conscience Protection Act

Conscience Protection Act

Congress is considering whether to include the Conscience Protection Act in must-pass government funding legislation.  A decision will be made prior to March 23, 2018.

Currently, nurses and other health care providers and institutions are being forced to choose between participating in abortions or leaving health care altogether. Churches and pro-life Americans are being forced to provide coverage for elective abortions—including late-term abortions—in their health care plans.

This situation would be remedied by enacting the Conscience Protection Act.  I encourage you to pray and to act by emailing and calling Congress in the coming week, especially on Monday, March 12.  Please tell them that enacting the Conscience Protection Act is urgently needed to protect Americans from being forced to violate their deeply held convictions about respect for human life.

Members of Congress can be reached by calling the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and asking to be connected with your representative or senator.

  1. Most Graced Bishop Steven,
    Thank you for this information, our prayer group here at Holy Trinity have a petition for this and lots of prayers are going behind it along with the rosary for abortion on Tuesday Mornings after Mass.
    God bless
