Earlier this year President Donald Trump's administration established a new division under the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This new division, the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division, was established to restore the enforcement of federal laws protecting religious freedom and rights of conscience.

Through this new division, the Department has issued a proposed regulation to enforce the protection of religious freedom that President Obama's administration shockingly ignored and violated. For example, Obama failed to enforce federal laws protecting the rights of conscience and religious liberty of those in California and Washington whose states mandated abortion coverage.

Tell the HHS you support the proposed regulation. This new action will provide "conscience-based protections for individuals and entities with objections to [abortion] based on religious belief and moral convictions."

As part of the process of establishing new regulations like this, HHS provides an opportunity for public comment on proposed regulation. Pro-abortion groups are lashing out against the proposed rule because they want your tax dollars to be used to force Christian health care workers to perform and participate in abortion.

The Department of Health and Human Services needs to hear the truth about life and religious liberty from you. I urge you to share this message with friends and family via email and social media to help 'button up' the years of Obama-era, anti-life violations.

The director for the Office of Civil Rights at HHS, Roger Severino, recently issued a refreshing statement about religious liberty. He said, "Conscience protection is a civil right guaranteed by laws that too often haven't been enforced. Today's proposed rule will provide our new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division with enforcement tools that will make sure our conscience laws are not empty words on paper, but guarantees of justice to victims of unlawful discrimination."

Healthcare professionals and churches purchasing health insurance should not be forced to participate in abortions. Send a message of thanks to the HHS for standing for religious liberty and urge them stay the course.
