Description

Please join us on March 26th from 3:30-4:30 pm in the ARC. Reception to follow in the Atrium.


On January 26, 2018, the Trump Administration promulgated a proposed rule to codify, clarify and implement several federal statutes that aim to protect the rights of health care providers to refuse health services based on religious or moral beliefs. These proposed rules, along with previously enacted statutes, arguably pit the religious beliefs of health care providers against the health care interests of patients.


Although focused on abortion, sterilization, and end of life care, the rules would cover all sorts of health care services funded by the federal government as well as anyone involved in the provision of those services, and all varieties of religious and moral objections, including those based on patients' gender, sexual orientation or racial identity.

Help us welcome panelists Martha Swartz, Kathryn Tucker, Radhika Rao and Dorit Reiss for a discussion on these proposed rules.
