Repeal of "conscience clause"

On CNN.com today: "Christian doctors' group protests rolling back 'conscience' rule." The Bush administration reinforced a 30-year-old law in which health care professionals are protected from providing services that violate their morals, including performing abortions and providing contraception.

However, the Obama administration is expected to reverse the rule, opening up thousands of health care workers to potential religious discrimination.
