Final Conscience Regulation: Does the New HHS Rule Promote Injustice?

On May 2, 2019, The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the final version of its conscience rule, authorizing individual healthcare workers and institutions to neglect providing certain services due to a religious or conscience objection. Some view the rule as consistent with the Administration’s promise to promote religious interests. Others fear allowing healthcare workers and facilities to deny critical or life-saving care to patients.
