Bush leaving one last law for the fetus fetishists

The Bush administration is planning to grant “sweeping” new protections to health care providers  , who oppose abortion and other procedures on religious or moral grounds.
The law will prohibit hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, drugstores and the like, that receive federal money from discriminating against doctors, nurses and other health care workers who refuse to perform or to assist in the performance of abortions or sterilization procedures because of their religious beliefs or moral convictions.
The rule would also allow employees in pharmacies to refuse to fill prescriptions for contraceptives or sell condoms.
Some state officials said the rule could void state laws that require insurance plans to cover contraceptives and require hospitals to offer emergency contraception to rape victims.
Just one last gift from Bush to the crazies that supported him.

And one more Bush, presidential proclamation that the Obama transition team will have to try and reverse .

C-537 - An Act to amend the Criminal Code (protection of conscience rights in the health care profession)

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
