Crisis of Conscience in ObamaCare

By Stan Guthrie

In today’s America, conscience is said to be king. Those who have conscientious objector status are exempted from the battlefront. In state-run schools or prisons, those who cannot eat meat out of ethical or religious conviction are often provided a vegetarian alternative. Those who choose to act on same-sex attractions increasingly are celebrated rather than pitied. It is not our role to question that choice, we are told. “Do not judge,” the arbiters of conscience say. What counts is that we are free to follow our conscience, wherever it might direct us.

Yet conscience apparently has its limits.
