Sasse Condemns Federal Judge's Anti-First Amendment Ruling
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Nov. 6, 2019
 
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement condemning a federal judge's ruling against the Trump Administration's conscience protections that prevent medical workers with religious objections from being forced to provide or refer abortions or assisted suicides.
 
"This decision is absurd mush. The point of the First Amendment -- especially the free exercise of religion -- is to protect the conscience rights of Americans. In this country, government doesn't get to tell you that your faith is fine on Sunday at church but not Monday at work. The Trump Administration ought to defend basic conscience rights all the way to the Supreme Court."
 
Background:
 
In May, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a final rule protecting the conscience rights of health care entities and individuals.
 
As Roger Severino, the Director of the Office for Civil Rights at HHS, said at the time: "This rule ensures that healthcare entities and professionals won't be bullied out of the health care field because they decline to participate in actions that violate their conscience, including the taking of human life. Protecting conscience and religious freedom not only fosters greater diversity in healthcare, it's the law."
