With the regulation change, health care workers will now have the power to opt out of carrying out an abortion if it goes against their personal, moral, or religious beliefs.

With these new regulations, the Bush administration is trying to back medical facilities into following them.

Any medical facility that does not give the choice to doctors, nurses, and others working in hospitals, will no longer receive any type of funding.

They need to be given the power to have the choice to not do a type of medical service, such as an abortion.

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that this would result in 584,000 medical facilities across the U.S. not receiving funding if they do not follow the new rules.

The regulation will take affect after a 30-day public comment period.

Many believe that this will lead to women not being able to receive an abortion.
