U.S. Health Agency Finalizes Conscience And Religious Freedom Rule

According to Reuters, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday released a final rule allowing doctors, nurses and other health workers to opt out of procedures such as abortions, which violate their personal or religious beliefs.

The rule, proposed more than a year ago, reinforces a set of 25 laws passed by Congress that protect “conscience rights” in healthcare.
