Washington, D.C. – Respect for Marriage

The United States House of Representatives has already passed a bill to redefine marriage to include two people of the same sex in federal law. Furthermore, this bill opens the door to recognize polygamy and polyamory. This bill fails to recognize that children, as Pope Francis says, have a right to a mother and a father. It also offers no religious freedom protections because it demands that all states and the federal government honor whatever state defines “marriage” to be.

Washington, D.C., Proposed HHS Rule Coerces Health Care Professionals and Insurers

The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a proposed rule (administrative regulation) that violates rights of conscience and religious freedom by coercing health care professionals and providers to perform, and health plans to cover, abortions and gender-transition procedures.  

If HHS adopts this proposed rule change, it may be construed to require a health care professional and provider to perform, and a health plan to cover, abortions.

The rule, if adopted, would similarly prohibit health professionals and other health care providers from declining to provide, and prohibit a health plan from declining to cover, gender-transition procedures.

To take action now, comment on this rule change, and contact HHS please click here.
