Conservatives believe the First Amendment clearly protects people from being forced to violate their own religious beliefs on issues like abortion.

“Just today we finalized new protections of conscience rights for physicians, pharmacists, nurses, teachers, students and faith-based charities,” Trump announced in the White House Rose Garden. “They’ve been wanting to do that for a long time.”

Liberals like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are furious, calling the religious freedom protections “bigoted” and “immoral.” She added, “This is an open license to discriminate against Americans.”

The city of San Francisco immediately sued to block the conscience regulation.
