When it rains, it pours ...

Another piece of good news from our current administration.

From The New York Times:

"WASHINGTON — The Obama administration moved on Friday to undo a last-minute Bush administration rule granting broad protections to health workers who refuse to take part in abortions or provide other health care that goes against their consciences."

The article references issues related to women's rights and reproductive choice, but as I blogged earlier this week, Barbara Coombs Lee has been very vocal in getting the word out that this law would also affect people's access to death with dignity.

Thanks for bringing attention to this very important issue, Jessica! I encourage your readers to let their legislators and President Obama know how crucial it is to rescind this harmful and dangerous rule.
