She scrubbed in like she usually did. Their patient, she was told, had just lost her baby. It was supposed to be a routine procedure — the kind they usually perform after a miscarriage. Turns out, nothing about the procedure was routine. When she met the doctor, he had an apologetic look in his eye. “Please don’t hate me,” he said. The woman’s baby, the nurse discovered, hadn’t died. They were there to destroy it. Shocked, the nurse turned and asked to be relieved. No, they answered. Faced with losing her job, she did something that’s traumatized her ever since: she helped abort an innocent child.
This nurse’s nightmare is exactly what the Trump administration was trying to avoid when it finalized HHS’s conscience rule this May. Like any sane person, the president thinks men and women in the medical community have a right to walk away from the table in situations like that one. Just imagine if you were asked to hold the scalpel that would mutilate a perfectly healthy teenager in gender transition. Or write a hormone prescription for a confused girl that would sterilize her for life. It’s moral terrorism — the kind a Manhattan judge just upheld.
First - Amendment - Doctors - Nurses - US
Apparently, the First Amendment doesn’t apply to doctors and nurses, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Engelmayer has decided. In an obscenely long diatribe, he blasts HHS for refusing to bully nurses like this one into doing something they vehemently oppose — like taking a human life. With a disproportionate amount of outrage, he slams the administration for acting “arbitrarily and capriciously.” He goes on to complain that HHS didn’t have the authority to make the rule (ironic, since the agencies under Presidents Bush and Obama did) and accused the agency of making up a spike in complaints like this nurse’s.
