Tom Coburn: An American Patriot

Posted by Mark on March 4, 2009

Having spent an interminable amount of time with Barack Obama and Dick Durbin as my Senators, it’s such an honor to be represented by someone like this:

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), who is also an OB/GYN, told on Friday that many medical practitioners, including himself, will go to prison before agreeing to engage in medical practices they morally oppose, such as abortion.
Earlier that same day, the Obama administration had announced it was “reviewing” a Bush administration regulation known as the “conscience clause.” That Health and Human Services regulation protects health-care workers at federally funded institutions from having to engage in practices that violate their moral or religious beliefs. These practices include performing or referring abortions, performing sterilizations, or giving or receiving training in these practices.

Go Tom!
