Restrictions on Women's Health Centers

The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects its citizens from state sponsored religion.  It also prohibits the government from enforcing or imposing religious beliefs or worship on its citizens.  The fourteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution extends that protection to all the States.

Rules and laws regulating the operation of any health organization must be based strictly on medical, scientific and public safety and welfare considerations only.  Religious beliefs have no place in the enactment of laws regulating health organizations of any kind.

America is NOT a Christian nation.  It is a secular nation in which all religions are created equal and may be practiced freely or not at all by each and every American.  Don't ever forget that.
