Protect Your Conscience

The laws that forbid discrimination against health care professionals who exercise their conscientious rights related to participation in abortions and sterilizations could be eliminated.

As a consequence, there would be little  protection for pro-lifers in the workplace. Many workers would leave their jobs, and over 600 Catholic hospitals around the nation would close their doors.

So, as a future nurse, I’m seriously concerned. And you should be too.

Help defend the conscience rights of health care professionals and students.

One Response to Protect Your Conscience

  1. One opposition to the law you mention was argued in the article: “Conscientious Objection Gone Awry — Restoring Selfless Professionalism in Medicine” by Julie D. Cantor, M.D., J.D., in the New England Journal of Medicine. I make a counter argument to Dr. Cantor’s article in the following blog post.
