Trump administration unveils expanded rule to protect health care workers who refuse service for religious reasons

President Trump is looking to change rules to allow more health care workers to opt out of providing care to certain people on religious or moral grounds.

The rule expansion, which President Trump announced during a speech before faith leaders earlier this month, would allow a wide variety of medical workers to deny care to a patient, including abortion or sterilization and assisted suicide.

Critics say the move would reduce services and could ultimately be harmful to some patients.
