  •  This is why... (9+ / 0-)

    a rabidly pro-life friend of mine completely changed her viewpoint.

    She desperately wanted a child.  Doctor never told her that having a child would almost certainly kill her in the process.

    Well, she got pregnant.  The pregnancy was going very badly, and the diagnosis was that the fetus would never survive, and she would probably die from the pregnancy.

    She was devastated.  When she went to the county (public) hospital to have the life-saving abortion, most of the nurses REFUSED to assist her.  Several told her she was going against "Jesus' will" and if she was meant to live, pray to Jesus.

    Can you imagine being so emotionally fragile, forced to do the one thing you think is so awful, but being forced to save your own life - and facing THAT from medical providers based on their "conscience".  

    They should lose their jobs and their licenses - not be protected.
