Forced Participation

| 2 Comments

Another example of "Choice":

Alliance Defense Fund attorneys filed a lawsuit Monday against Mount Sinai Hospital on behalf of a Catholic nurse who was forced to participate in a late-term abortion under the threat of disciplinary action, including possible termination and loss of her license. The hospital has known of her religious objections to abortion since 2004.

Hospital administrators told the nurse that the scheduled abortion was an "emergency," though evidence shows otherwise, and insisted moments before the procedure that she assist doctors despite her repeated objections to the procedure, which dismembered a preborn child in the 22nd week of gestation. By federal law, hospitals that receive federal funds cannot force employees to participate in abortion procedures under any circumstances.

Thankfully the ADF is on the case but I have to wonder how many voices are never heard when (allegedly) forced to violate their conscience in this manner?

As a Catholic and an RGN(UK) I am appalled that the nurse in question at Mount Sinai was still expected to assist in an abortion procedure despite her strong objections. I understand the pressure surrounding her in this case but I would have walked away and fought my case as she is doing now. It is never a easy option when threatened with dissmissal and withdrawal of registration but LIFE supercedes all of these and although I am not judging a fellow nurse whom has taken to task those who threatened her in this way I hope this appalling scenario is not repeated.I resigned a post myself in 2007 rather than be complicit in abortion.My heartfelt prayers are with this nurse who must regret every second she spent in the operating room....God knows your heart.

Well, most nurses have encountered doctors who are used to getting their own way and who can rant and rave till the cows come home. Recognise these defects for what they are and, if you object to participating in abortions, stick to your guns and don’t be intimidated nor bullied. Exercise your right to refuse to have anything to do with it. It won’t always be easy, but there really isn’t an alternative. By voicing your objections, you never know … others might start to question what is happening and end up agreeing with you. We really are in a privileged position as nurses – never underestimate your power to influence others.
