BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. COBURN. Mr. President, imagine tomorrow morning, if we are in session, and you no longer get to vote your conscience, that a Federal bureaucrat will tell you what you can and cannot do.

The fact is, we have wonderful physicians in this country who make decisions every day based on a multitude of factors, including what they think in their conscience is right. This is an amendment which simply protects that right, just as you would want the right for your vote in this body to be protected. It also protects the conscience of a patient to be able to choose the physician and the caregiver to whom they trust their body and their health.

I hope this body will support this amendment.

I yield the floor.
