Catholic Medical Association thanks President Trump for ending Obamacare mandates

Obamacare created a major divide between the efforts to offer universal medical coverage and civil liberties groups. Among those negatively impacted were religious groups facing mandates to coverage abortion pills and contribute funding for abortions – all violating their freedom of conscience.

Here’s the most recent letter praising President Trump, the HHS and his administration for lifting these mandates and offering relief:

Dear President Trump,

As a physician-led national Catholic healthcare organization we gratefully extend our sincere appreciation for your ongoing commitment to help return America to a culture of life.
On behalf of the entire membership of the Catholic Medical Association (CMA), we applaud your courageous action to help defund abortion facilities such as Planned Parenthood.

Your administration’s latest changes to the Title X Family Planning grant program has eliminated the mandate which forced recipients to counsel or refer for abortion. That rule prevented groups like CMA, that object to abortion on medical, religious and moral grounds eligible for funding. We have submitted our application for Title X grants.

Now, instead of taxpayer money funding life ending, abortions it can be reallocated and used to support comprehensive family health and planning centers that do not perform abortions. We know you believe as we do that abortion is not healthcare.

Thank you, Mr. President for your strong leadership and much-needed action to help restore the United States to a culture of life. May God continue to guide your decisions.


The Catholic Medical Association

The Catholic Medical Association is a national, physician-led community of nearly 2,500 healthcare professionals consisting of 103 local guilds.
