House Passes Rep. Black’s Conscience Protection Act

Bill would prevent government discrimination against healthcare entities refusing to participate in abortion

Today the House of Representatives passed Congressman Diane Black’s legislation, the Conscience Protection Act, by a bipartisan vote of 245 – 182. The legislation amends the Public Health Service Act (PHSA) to prevent any federal state, or local government from penalizing or otherwise discriminating against a health care provider on the basis that the provider does not participate in abortion. Earlier today, Congressman Black spoke in support of the legislation on the House floor.  To view her comments, see the video above.
