I'm a pro-choice Catholic. That is to say, I'm in favor of doctors and nurses having the choice of whether they'll participate in abortions or not.
Has anybody else noticed the blatant hypocrisy of the pro-choice crowd? Choice, choice, choice, but no choice if a medical professional wants to choose not to do an abortion.
I had an email saying that on Tues. March 3, Fr. Mitch Pacwa on EWTN informed his audience that the legislature is giving the public one week to give them feedback on how they feel regarding eliminating the "conscience rights" put in by Pres. Bush.
This would mean that doctors and nurses would not be able to refuse to participate in abortions because of their religious/moral views. If they do refuse they are open to be sued. They want to see if anyone cares. Let's show them that we do!

Dear Mr President,
If you were truly pro-choice you would continue to allow doctors and nurses the choice not to participate in abortion.
Please do not remove this freedom from our health care professionals.
Work instead to guarantee the rights of hospitals and all health care professionals to make their own choice to be involved in abortion or not.
