More on the HHS Conscience Rights Rule

New LadyBlog post on the HHS ‘conscience rights’ rule change:

Amanda Marcotte suggests that the administration is trying to push this rule-change through this month — even though it will likely be overturned by Obama or the new Congress — as part of a strategy to draw even more attention to the issue when he/it does. I find this scenario extremely plausible—which is why I think its important to remember that it is the Bush administration that is creating the new rules. Medical practitioners already have the right to refuse to perform abortions, and have since the 1970s.

Ahem.
