Now is the moment to contact your federal representative and urge him/her to co-sponsor and work to enact H.R. 4828, the Conscience Protection Act of 2016. Please tell your member of the federal House of Representatives that you expect him/ her to uphold the right of conscientious objection to abortion by enacting this much needed legislation. The bill, introduced on March 22, 2016 by Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) and Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), contains the policy of what in past years has been called the Abortion Non-Discrimination Act (ANDA).
