Obamacare May Trigger Exodus of Christian Doctors

Ad Feedback

Thousands of Christian doctors across the nation are considering quitting medicine or working overseas because of concerns over the new healthcare law.

Dr. Gene Rudd, senior vice president of the Christian Medical Association, says they're worried they could be forced to facilitate abortions or prescribe drugs that violate their convictions.

Rudd says many of them have avoided hiring and taking on new patients due to uncertainty over Obamacare.

Thousands of the doctors provide care for the poorest areas of the United States and feel called by God to help the sick, but say they need to be able to do so with a clear conscience.
