STOP The Provider Conscience Rule

STOP The Provider Conscience Rule
5:00pm (sharp)
Worcester City Hall (455 Main Street, the front)

Our Community Speaks Out

On January 20th, the Bush Administration instituted a midnight regulation known as the Provider Conscience Rule. This rule allows workers in any federally funded health care facility to refuse to do work that offends their religious or personal beliefs – such as providing treatment to transgender people, bisexuals, lesbians, or gays. It may allow providers to deny services such as basic birth control and HIV tests, or even emergency procedures for certain people, if doing so would offend their beliefs.

WE demand the Obama Administration immediately reverse the Provider Conscience Rule.

A brief skit by community members will be followed by a speak out

Confirmed speakers include:

Joe O'Brien (Representative James P.
McGovern's Office)

Rev Judith Hanlon (Hadwen Park Congregational Church, UCC)

Sara N. B.
Connor (Nurse Practitioner, UMASS Care Mobile)

Jesse Pack (Mass Transgender Political Coalition)

Ron Madnick (American Civil Liberties Union)
