Pro-family organizaton responds to California Attorney General on “freedom of conscience attack”

.- A leading pro-family organization, Campaign for Children and Families, issued a response to California Attorney General Bill Lockyer’s announcement yesterday that he will sue to block the Hyde-Weldon conscience amendment in the recently-passed federal spending bill which prohibits government entities from punishing doctors who won't do abortions, saying that Lockyer is ignoring the right to “freedom of conscience.”

Randy Thomasson, president of CCF stated: "Imagine you're a baby doctor.  You've said the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm, and now Bill Lockyer is forcing you to participate in killing an unborn child in a bloody abortion procedure.  What ever happened to a person's 'right to choose' to have a conscience?

"Instead of behaving like a lawyer for the wealthy abortion groups, Lockyer should immediately draft legislation to conform California to the new federal law,” said Thomasson.

“California doesn't have to lose any federal funds,” he explained. “Abortions would still occur in California, but the state would cease and desist from forcing doctors and nurses to horribly kill unborn children against their own conscience."
