Attorney General Chris Carr Urges HHS to Restore Religious Freedom and Conscience Rights

Attorney General Chris Carr has signed onto a joint letter with 17 other state attorneys general showing their support for “proposed rules that would ensure that religious freedom and freedom of conscience rights are restored to their proper place in our constitutional system of government.”

A press release from Carr’s office states that “In January, HHS announced a new proposed rule that would designate its Office for Civil Rights to enforce 25 existing statutory protections for Americans involved in HHS-funded programs which were created to protect people from being coerced into participating in activities that violate their consciences.”

Attorney General Carr:

“I am pleased to see that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is taking meaningful action to ensure that Americans can abide by their religious, moral, and ethical beliefs without fear of government intimidation and discrimination.”
