Bill would permanently block rule allowing providers to deny care based on religious beliefs – News – McKnight’s Senior Living

Three members of Congress planned to introduce a bill Tuesday that would permanently block a federal rule that allows healthcare workers and organizations to decline to provide care that conflicts with their religious and moral beliefs or mission. The “conscience rule” had been set to go into effect Nov. 22 but last week was ruled unlawful by two federal courts. The Put Patients First Act was to be introduced by Reps. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Chris Pappas (D-NH) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA).
