So Much for Conscience

Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration Friday will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows health-care workers to deny abortion counseling or other family-planning services if doing so would violate their moral beliefs, according to administration officials.

This is from the Chicago Tribune. Of course, this is all Ok because:

Officials stressed Thursday that the administration is looking for input from people across the ideological spectrum before it finalizes the rollback after the standard 30-day comment period."We believe that this is a complex issue that requires a thoughtful process where all voices can be heard," said one official, who was not authorized to speak on the record.

Of course. Obama's really shown a willingness so far to look for and gather pro-life input. Right before he wipes his butt with it.

This is further proof of the rank hypocrisy of the pro-abortion ranks of the left. Allow me to roll the clock back a years to 2006. If you'll recall, that was when 55 congressional heretics claiming to follow the True Faith wrote a letter containing the following textual turd:

In all these issues, we seek the Church's guidance and assistance but believe also in the primacy of conscience. In recognizing the Church's role in providing moral leadership, we acknowledge and accept the tension that comes with being in disagreement with the Church in some areas. Yet we believe we can speak to the fundamental issues that unite us as Catholics and lend our voices to changing the political debate -- a debate that often fails to reflect and encompass the depth and complexity of these issues.

Hypocrites. And The Master commented on their ilk quite often:

Hypocrites, well hath Isaias prophesied of you, saying: This people honoureth me with their lips: but their heart is far from me.

Matthew 15:7-8

And, of course:

The lord of that servant shall come in a day that he hopeth not, and at an hour that he knoweth not: And shall separate him, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 24:50-51
