On Friday, April 1, EPPC’s HHS Accountability Project Scholars Senior Fellow Roger Severino and Fellow Rachel N. Morrison met with federal government officials to discuss concerns over an upcoming proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services that would rescind health care conscience regulations. Among other points, the EPPC scholars argued for continued regulatory protections for the conscience and religious freedom rights of health care professionals and faith-based institutions, listing many of the costs of removing such protections.
A written version of those comments, submitted to the government, is available here (PDF).
