Can nurses be forced to assist with abortions if they have a moral objection to the procedure?
Recently nurses in New Jersey were threatened with losing their jobs if they did not assist with abortions, so they took the issue to the courts.
As a result of a federal court hearing on Thursday, December 22nd, a New Jersey hospital agreed that it will not force nurses to assist with abortion cases in violation of federal and state law. The hospital agreed not to replace the pro-life nurses or reduce their hours. The nurses affirmed that if a woman suffers a true emergency from an abortion, they will help protect her until other staff, such as the emergency team, arrives moments later.
