Please join us on April 14 for a panel discussion on religious conscience exemptions in the health care arena. The protection of conscience for health care providers has, in some arguments, been pitted against the right of an individual to receive a health care product or service. This past February, the Obama Administration revised earlier conscience clause regulations enacted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during the Bush Administration. What are the practical implications of these revised regulations? How will the federal government now handle complaints filed by health care providers who allege that they have been compelled to violate their moral or religious beliefs? These and other questions will be addressed by our panel of experts.
Panelists include Dr. M. Gregg Bloche of Georgetown Law, Robert Destro of American Law, Farr A. Curlin of the University of Chicago Medical Center, and Professor D. Jessie Hill of Case Western Reserve University School of Law. The panel will be moderated by Professor Mark Rienzi of Catholic Law. Free catered lunch will be provided. This event has been made possible by a generous John Templeton Foundation grant.
