Obama may overturn Bush's 'conscience' rules

2/27/2009

NEW YORK The Obama Administration may overturn the Bush Administration's "conscience" rules that allow healthcare workers to invoke religious beliefs to deny certain services such as birth control, according to published reports.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Barack Obama may roll back the provisions, which allow pharmacists to refuse to prescribe birth control pills on account of personal religious beliefs. 

Seven states have also filed lawsuits to challenge the rule, the newspaper reported.
