But will they be allowed to opt out of torturing terrorists?

The Bush administration, as expected, announced new protections on Thursday for health care providers who oppose abortion and other medical procedures on religious or moral grounds.

“Doctors and other health care providers should not be forced to choose between good professional standing and violating their conscience,” Michael O. Leavitt, the secretary of Health and Human Services, said in a statement on his department’s Web site.

The rule prohibits recipients of federal money from discriminating against doctors, nurses and health care aides who refuse to take part in procedures because of their convictions, and it bars hospitals, clinics, doctors’ office and pharmacies from forcing their employees to assist in programs and activities financed by the department.

Hum....

But in Happier News:
Who can blame Galveston plainclothes police who thought a 12-year-old girl standing outside her house (flipping the switch on the circuit breaker as her mother has asked her to do) was a prostitute? After all, she was wearing "tight shorts" according to the vigilant officers, and she happened to live only two blocks away from a location where someone had complained that prostitution was taking place.
...
I guess the silly family expected an apology from the police. Like I said, silly. Instead, here's what happened.
Three weeks later, according to the lawsuit, police went to Dymond’s school, where she was an honor student, and arrested her for assaulting a public servant. Griffin says the allegations stem from when Dymond fought back against the three men who were trying to take her from her home. The case went to trial, but the judge declared it a mistrial on the first day, says Griffin. The new trial is set for February.

Ah yes, when the allegations of Moral Purity should take precedence....

Since clearly, there is a need to send a Message to Society that we are not going to support these Gay HomoZeXual Marriage Agendanista, and that we are going to need a Permenant Capital Gains Tax Cut to stop them, and we will go on support the Troops, the Paramilitary foces, and the people who have the gooder conscience until we get that Tax Cut!!!

Anything Less and the Terrorists WIN!!!

{ and the question some slow readers maybe wondering, but what about the torture... well, ever notice that there are medical staff available to maintain the torturee in a state of conscience so that they can full appreciate the information extraction mechanisms... and GOD ALONE only knows that we need them to keep us safe from WHILEY 12 year old honor students who could be secretly harbouring Anti-Empire Attitudes!!! }
