Please Contact Your US Senators to Support Respect for Rights of Conscience Act.

You, the Catholic voter, are the only one who can make a difference: millions of Catholic voters do have a voice.  Together we can defend all the Catholic doctors and nurses in America who must defend life directly in their day to day jobs. What to do?  Write or phone your Congressperson.

The 2010 comprehensive health care reform law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), poses new risks to religious freedom and rights of conscience.

To correct these problems, Reps. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Dan Boren (D-OK) introduced the Respect for Rights of Conscience Act (H.R. 1179). This measure will ensure that those who participate in the health care system "retain the right to provide, purchase, or enroll in health coverage that is consistent with their religious beliefs and moral convictions".

Please contact your U.S. Senators: (1) Call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at: 202-224-3121, or (2) send an e-mail through NCHLA's Action Center:, or (3) find contact info at:

UPDATE: I just went to the NCHLA website, and found many current Action Alerts for legislation pending before the US Congress regarding protection for the unborn and protection of the conscience rights of health care workers.  It only took me 5 minutes to send emails -- the form letter is all ready to go -- EASY!
