Americans support conscience rights for doctors

Early last month the Obama Administration moved to rescind a current regulation the protects the conscience rights of America's health care workers.  Meaning they would no longer be able to decline to perform health care related "services", (ie: abortion), on the grounds of their conscience and/or religious convictions.

So how do Americans feel about this issue?  Well, thanks to a survey conducted on behalf of the Christian Medical Association, we now have a poll which answers that question.

From the survey:

"A sizable 87% of American adults surveyed believe it is important to 'make sure that healthcare professionals in America are not forced to participate in procedures and practices to which they have moral objections.'"
