Remember that infuriating memo draft from the department of Health and Human services that was meant to protect the rights of anti-choice doctors but actually managed to define birth control as abortion? Well the real memo is out, and while it doesn't have language related to birth control, it still will allow doctors "to practice according to their conscience," HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt says. "Doctors and other health care providers should not be forced to choose between good professional standing and violating their conscience. Freedom of expression and action should not be surrendered upon the issuance of a health care degree." [HHS]
