6 Days to go

Not till the election, but till something else very important.

Readers, take note. The Bush administration is trying to pass a rule that would allow health care workers to refuse any treatment they don't agree with--including not just abortion (which is already such a procedure), but also contraception and sterilization.

If you haven't read HRC's op-ed yet, please do:
LAST month, the Bush administration launched the latest salvo in its eight-year campaign to undermine women’s rights and women’s health by placing ideology ahead of science: a proposed rule from the Department of Health and Human Services that would govern family planning. It would require that any health care entity that receives federal financing — whether it’s a physician in private practice, a hospital or a state government — certify in writing that none of its employees are required to assist in any way with medical services they find objectionable.
And then go to the Planned Parenthood website and follow the links to register your protest against the rule.

I assume you mean "...allow health care workers to refuse to provide or perform any treatment..."

Although I am strongly pro-choice, if I were a health care worker, I'd certainly refuse an abortion myself.

At least I'd want a second opinion.
