The Biden Department of Health and Human Services wants to strip religious freedom—and even basic conscience and moral rights—from health care providers

Should doctors be forced to perform abortions? The Biden administration thinks so!

Unfortunately, HHS issued a new rule in January under the guise of increased “conscience protections.” Ironically, that is EXACTLY what the administration will undermine if they finalize this rule.

The rule would force doctors to perform abortions or gender transitions on children in violation of their deeply held moral or religious beliefs.

HHS admits the purpose of the newly proposed rule, in part, is to enforce the idea that “health care systems must effectively deliver services—including safe legal abortions—to all…” (emphasis added)

But doctors should never be forced to perform an abortion.

How can you help?

When a federal agency proposes a rule, they allow the public to comment online in a simple form. This is one of the most effective ways we can make our voices heard to the Biden administration. The more comments they receive, the more they will get the message that the American public does NOT want doctors to be forced to perform abortions.

That’s where you come in!

HHS is accepting your comments on this rule for a limited time, so FPA has prepared a letter to help get you started. Below is an excerpt from that letter:

“A doctor should never be forced to harm one of his two patients…The bottom line is this rule will only hurt the medical community’s ability to provide moms and their children real medical care and will force them to violate their consciences.”

Here are two steps you can take TODAY!

  1. Head to our Action Center and tell the Administration today that you demand they cancel this rule and provide strong protections for the conscience rights of the medical community!
  2. Share this commenting opportunity with other friends and family who will also speak out.

I hope you will take a moment to raise your voice to the Biden administration.

For life,

Dear Friends,

We have an urgent request for your help. In just days, the comment period will close for a radical rule the Biden Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is pushing. If enacted, the rule would require any healthcare entity that participates in ObamaCare to provide abortions and gender transition procedures—and require federal health insurance plans to cover them. The rule modifies section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) by removing Trump Administration policies to force federal health insurance plans to cover abortion and elective gender transition procedures.

We need your help to stop this latest effort from Woke DC!

Your voice can make a difference! Right now, you can submit a comment on this proposed rule urging Biden’s HHS to rescind the rule.


The proposed rule also rescinds the Trump-era Conscience Protection ensuring that the rights of healthcare providers who oppose abortion and gender transition procedures on moral or religious grounds would not be violated. Biden’s HHS seeks to put these providers in their crosshairs with this rule and run roughshod over their First Amendment freedoms.

This comment period is only open until 11:59 pm ET Monday, October 3, so we need you to act fast!

Please submit a public comment opposing this dangerous rule! Tell the HHS you STRONGLY OPPOSE using our healthcare system to promote abortion and gender transitions (even on children)—and disregarding any providers who prefer not to provide those procedures.

We’ve provided some comments for you to use, but the more personal you can make your comments, the better! The federal rulemaking process requires the Administration to respond to “unique” comments, so use our sample comments to make yours as individualized and specific as possible!

For example:

Tell HHS how this will impact your doctor.

Tell HHS how this policy violates the conscience rights of healthcare providers.

Tell HHS how this will impact your healthcare.

Tell HHS how this will endanger women through the spread of abortion.

Tell HHS how this harm children through dangerous gender transition procedures.

Tell HHS that abortion and dangerous gender transitions are NOT healthcare.

Please SHARE this information with your family and friends–every comment can help slow down and may even stop this rule!


Standing with you,

Joseph Kohm
