U.S. judge voids Trump-backed 'conscience' rule for healthcare workers

NEW YORK -- A federal judge in Manhattan on Wednesday declared void a rule backed by the Trump administration that would make it easier for doctors and nurses to avoid performing abortions on religious or moral grounds.

The 147-page decision by U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer on the so-called "conscience" rule came in a lawsuit by more than 20 U.S. states and municipalities, which said enforcement could undermine their ability to provide effective healthcare without jeopardizing billions of dollars a year in aid.

1. Catholic hospital systems in NY have used this as a dodge for paying for birth control.

Go get 'em.

3. Personally I have few issues with a religious based hospital that wants a "conscience" rule

however they should receive zero federal or state taxpayer money.

that receives tax dollars, their behavior should be secular.

If you want to be non-secular and apply your religious beliefs,
you/they can't received tax dollars, and you/they can't claim
tax breaks that everyone else enjoys.

Secular - denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis.

11. Yes - if you're gonna take taxpayer money, then provide all legal healthcare to all taxpayers

or lose your funding.

Same with the goddamn school vouchers going to religious schools. I call bullshit.

13. Access to birth control means less abortions--isn't that the goal?

Of course it is not! They, the religious right, fake christian gop want to control women's reproductive rights, bodies.

Kamala Harris' questioning of sexual predator Kavanaugh points out that fact: "Can you think of any laws that give government the right to control the male body?" After odious oaf stumbles to answer..she retorts by saying.."I'll take that as no." [See video link]
