Two practical issues keep the UK out ahead of the US in respecting this particular aspect of health care.
1) The heath care provider shortage caused by socialized medcine.
2) The impact of allowing the few remaining people with a conscience to practice in that manner will not inconvenience the rest a great deal.
Regulator Keeps Conscience Clause for Religious Pharmacists | Christianpost.com.
At least this new “General Regulatory Council” has kept itself ahead of such entities as the Wisconsin board of pharmacy, which fined and removed the license of a pharmacist who would not dispense birth control pills.
Conscientious objection in the U.S. will be sufficiently high that the current government will continue to suppress it. The cost containment ‘benefits’ of killing to reduce the population of patients will be deemed higher than the need to retain sufficient numbers of health care professionals for patient safety.

One of the twenty pens Obama used to sign his health-kill plan apparently goes to Sr. Carol Keehan of the Catholic Heath Association for her hard work in getting his bill passed, with the abortion funding intact.
What a souvenir!!!
A list of others who get the pens is at National Review Online.
A bit of information on Sr. Carol Keehan’s organization, her salary, and some comparisons to the leaders of other non profits can be found at Catholic key blog

MEDIA ADVISORY, March 11 /Christian Newswire/ —
Filling up my email inbox are huge numbers of requests from various pro life organizations to sign petitions which demand removal of abortion from health care.
Very briefly, this is the explanation for an inability to sign on to most of these.
The premise from so many groups is that the problem of the Democrat health care plans will be solved with language removing abortion funding from the bill.
Many people incorrectly assume that removing funding will remove the abortion mandate. This is not so. Mothers will be coerced to abort unborn babies with untoward fetal diagnoses in any government run system, because there will be the threat of no health coverage for such kids. Health care professionals will still be coerced to participate in this and other unethical activity. This is the reality in other socialized medicine systems which lack funding for the care of premature infants, and those with significant congenital disabilities.
Denial of care at other points in development, with respect to early diagnosis using imaging, severe illnesses, and terminal illness, is also a sad reality in other government run health care systems, as well as the one planned for America.
Finally there is the problem of turning over our health care autonomy to an entity which is known to be corrupt. This is not a smart move. The control over our health care will be used by the federal government to control other aspects of our lives, including expression of religious beliefs.
Sorry to the pro-life liberals, this pharmacist (whose insights stem from health care experience), is ethically constrained from signing on to any aspect of the killer-government controlled health care.

Independent experts to review pandemic handling – WHO – Yahoo! Asia News.
The World Health Organization has been so disgraced by its handling of the H1N1 swine flu issue, that an independent panel has been assigned to evaluate its procedures.
In other words, the WHO wishes to find a way to not appear so STUPID and disorganized during the next disease outbreak .

My Way News – Obama announces 15 recess appointments, scolds GOP.
From the article…… McCain scolding Obama back:
“Once again the administration showed that it had little respect for the time honored constitutional roles and procedures of Congress,” said Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, Obama’s foe in the 2008 presidential election. “This is clear payback by the administration to organized labor.”
