OBAMA-APPOINTED JUDGE BLOCKS CONSCIENCE PROTECTIONS FOR HEALTH CARE WORKERS

Lord God Almighty, You are the source of all of our rights. We ask that You would preserve our religious freedom in America. Thank You that we have nothing to fear.

Hundreds of health care workers say they face discrimination for their religious beliefs, but an Obama-appointed judge has now ruled that the current system that punishes people of faith is working just fine.

In the latest blow to religious liberty, a federal judge on Wednesday struck down a Trump administration rule that would have allowed health care workers to refuse participation in abortions and other services on moral or religious grounds.

Grow the Qualities of an Effective Intercessor with our Derek Prince daily devotional series.

The rule hadn’t even gone into effect yet. The order by US District Judge Paul Engelmayer in New York blocks the rule from going into effect on Nov. 22.

Engelmayer said he was tossing out the rule in its entirety.

The rule came into being after President Donald Trump in May 2017 signed an executive order instructing the attorney general to issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in federal law.

Back in May of this year, the Department of Health and Human Services published a rule applying more than 30 “Conscience Provisions” that must be complied with for an entity to receive federal funding.

Lawsuits were immediately filed by states and cities led by Democrats and other liberals challenging the rule, arguing that the department exceeded its authority in establishing it, claiming it also violated the Constitution.

Engelmayer, who was appointed by Democrat President Barack Obama, wrote in a 147-page opinion that existing laws already define the duties of employers with respect to religious objections. . . .

Allan Parker, founder, and president of The Justice Foundation said Judge Engelmayer’s ruling is wrong and morally reprehensible.

“Every American, including health care clinicians, has the right to practice their moral and religious beliefs and should not be forced to perform an act that many physicians find repugnant,” Parker said in a statement. “It is time to not only protect the conscience rule for all health care clinicians but to end this horrific crime against humanity by overturning Roe and Doe. To this date, over a quarter of a million people have signed The Moral Outcry Petition calling on the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn these cases.”

As CBN News reported in May, the HHS received more than 1,300 complaints last year that health care workers faced discrimination for their religious beliefs or conscience issues.

  1. Father- Let justice roll down like a river. We pray that this would be overturned. But in the meantime we pray for those who are being impacted by this ruling. Help them to be willing to stand for truth and righteousness. Help them to stand even in the face of loss. Help them to honor You and what you call us to higher than anything else. And help the church to come alongside them and provide. May these times display the faithfulness of your children to do what is right and to stand with those who are doing right. May this situation display your grace and the fact that your people love one another like your Word says we should. Father- strengthen us according to your Word.

  2. We lift up our nation to turn back to you. We deserve Your punishment, but ask for mercy and for You to raise up Godly leaders to lead us back to You. That the hearts of the people would be “take away the stony heart, give us a heart of flesh.” That families re-unite and be intact, that addictions be broken, that fathers and mothers protect their children according to Your Word, not according to the latest fad destined to cause heartache if followed. Give us sound minds. In Christ. Amen.
