Nurses Don’t Want To Be Abortionists

Nurses Don’t Want To Be Abortionists

Twelve nurses represented by the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) have sued a hospital operated by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) for requiring them to participate in abortions.

“Pro-life nurses shouldn’t be forced to assist in abortions against their beliefs,” said ADF Legal Counsel Matt Bowman. “No less than 12 nurses have encountered threats to their jobs at this hospital ever since a policy change required them to participate in the abortions regardless of their religious objections. That is flatly illegal.”

Laws exist at both the Federal and State levels that give medical professionals the right to opt out of participation in abortions. The Federal law prohibits medical facilities that receive Federal funding from requiring employees to participate in the procedures—UMDNJ receives about $60 million in said funding each year, money the nurses are asking the court to revoke.

A September policy change at the hospital that requires same-day surgery nurses to participate in surgical abortions has resulted in threats to the jobs of nurses who have protested on grounds of religious belief. Hospital officials reportedly say UMDNJ has “no regard for religious beliefs.” In October, the hospital began training sessions that actually require assistance in surgical abortion for its nursing staff.

ADF attorneys are asking the court to issue an order that stops abortion training sessions while the lawsuit moves forward. If the order is not granted, the nurses will continue to be scheduled one by one to undergo the training and then to assist abortions on a regular basis.

ADF is involved in a similar lawsuit in New York against the Mount Sinai Medical Center, where a Catholic nurse protested required involvement in abortion procedures last year.

    Do they not have enough nurses who don’t object who can do this task? Or is this simply a lawsuit intended to make a statement? Regardless of personal beliefs, abortion has been legal in the US for 40 years. Why is it that some people are vehemently against abortion but think fertility treatments are wonderful? In an abortion, a woman makes the agonizing decision to correct a mistake. In fertility treatments, 12 embryos are purposely created knowing most or all will die as a result of attempting to grow them in a hostile uterus. The ones that aren’t implanted are frozen indefinitely or disposed of. How can anyone think that cavalier disregard for life is fine but abortion is murder?

    • Wu Ming Ren

      After experiencing her third miscarriage (the first two early and the last one late in the pregnancy) , my wife suggested that we investigate fertility treatment options. We met with a doctor who explained the entire procedure, including the fact that more eggs would be fertilized than needed for implant. We decided we were done. We now have two beautiful daughters that we adopted.

      Ellen says: Why is it that some people are vehemently against abortion but think fertility treatments are wonderful?

      Because, one involves death, and the other, fertility treatments, promotes life. Is it that unreasonable that some people,(sane),would express an aversion towards death, and express a positive attitude towards life? Have you ever witnessed an abortion, and that, from a practitioner’s point of view? As to your comparing embryos, to first, second, and third trimester fetus, or unborn, in that, they are equal, i would venture to guess that embryos do not feel pain. Your comparison, of course, has limited value to your argument, in that, they can both, embryo and fetus, be categorized as life, but certainly not both equal in terms of development. Embryos are nothing more then building material, a fetus however, is a human being in progress, and precisely here is where your comparison fails to support your argument. But nice try anyways!

        What isn’t understood is that this is America and you don’t get to jam your religion down the throats of those who don’t want it.

        Clue: It’s unAmerican to try to force your religion upon another.

        What part of that don’t you understand samurai?

          Ahhhhh such word play to insult others and steal their rights. Then the same could be said about this “hospital” forcing its beliefs on the nurses, couldn’t it? As long as there is freedom of speech and religion in this great country, you and your ilk will never win. Why? You always say “We The People”, but you have no idea what it means. You are nothing more than a simpleton troll. The hospital cannot force their higher ups will upon their nurses, plain and simple. How can you always cry out about freedom, but you deny the majority of the population the right to speak, choose, and practice their faith? Can’t have it both ways, butthead. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Robert Smith

            The hospital cannot force their higher ups will upon their nurses, plain and simple.

            Actually to offer a religious exception to what is best medical practice is OK to do to nurses. It is a STATE organization so the religion of your brutal god doesn’t come into play. NJ wants to offer the best care to ALL its citizens.

            From University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey: “We are the nation’s largest health sciences University. We are New Jersey’s state wide system of health sciences education, biomedical research and HealthCare. We are the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Founded in 1970 to consolidate New Jersey’s health professions education, UMDNJ has become the very core of the state’s health sciences system. With five campuses and a network of more than 200 affiliated healthcare and educational partners spanning the state, we touch the lives of almost every New Jerseyan every day.”

            I find it sad that based upon your religion you wouldn’t allow complete medical care. Even for a woman who’s life is threatened by a pregnancy continuing. YOU would deny the education necessary to save her life. That isn’t “pro-life” it’s murder by religion of a born woman if she doesn’t get proper treatment.

            Sorry dude, but how would you know if the hospital is state run? My wife’s hospital isn’t state run. Hospitals tend to go by state and federal laws, but are seperate entities and not run by the state. Second, since you always scream about freedom of speech and religion in America, how no one can force their beliefs on someone else, you are a hypocrate! How can you stand for these things, but then turn around and do the opposite? Can’t have it both ways, butthead. Third, what the nurses are doing is legal and is their rights under the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. It seems you know nothing about our God given rights, just only what you want them to be. You are a very narrow minded, ignorant troll. Do I believe in adequate health care? Though this is off the subject again (Classic lib strategy), I do believe in it, but it is the person and not the government that is responsible for getting coverage. They are to be self reliant and personally responsible, two of our founding principles. Knock off the nonsense. No matter how many times people prove you wrong, you still act the part of the moron. Enough lies! Don’t post anything unless it is true! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Joe H.

            robbie,
            Hate to burst your psychotic little bubble, but a very, very small percentage of abortions performed are to protect the health of the MOTHER!!! Tubular pregnancies and the such are actually quite rare!!!

          • Robert Smith

            samurai, samurai, samurai… There you go again.

            See 2011 “Fast Facts” at http://www.umdnj.edu/home2web/about/index.htm:
            “University Information
            Founded in 1970 by the State Legislature as the College of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey; granted University status in 1981.”

            So samurai once again using your wife’s “experience” fails the test of reality in this case.

            Joe H. says: ” but a very, very small percentage of abortions performed are to protect the health of the MOTHER!!! ”

            And it looks like you will let those women die because of the enforced religious ignorance and anti-abortion zeal. Any woman who dies in need of an abortion there is NO question in my mind that it is the murder of a BORN (IOW there is no argumet about humanity) woman.

            That ain’t “pro-life” In that case “pro-life” is an outright lie.

            Ahhhhh such word play to insult others and steal their rights. I told you want happens in my wife’s hospital and not every hospital across the nation. Like Joe H. said, the kind of abortions that you are talking about are less than 1% of all abortions. Are these the ones you are talking about needing? If so, then that would make the other 99% of them not needed, now wouldn’t it? SSDD, eh Rob? Same old moronic responses from someone who don’t care about what is morally right and the rights of children. Boy am I glad Indiana gives rights to the unborn. You know, if you kill a woman and if she was pregnant, you would face 2 counts of murder. If the child died, but the mother lived is 1 count of murder. We have also defunded unplanned parenthood (Though Obama bin Laden is trying to extort the state of its medicare and medicaid monies if the don’t change this policy), and have even made it mandatory for doctors to have the woman listen to the childs heartbeat before making a decision to abort or not. Thank God Indiana is moving in the right direction. Not the direction of atheists and morons like you Rob. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Robert Smith

            samurai falsly concludes: ” If so, then that would make the other 99% of them not needed, now wouldn’t it? SSDD, eh Rob?”

            Nope. The other 99% of women (an unproven number BTW) (I suspect it was made up) who may or may not have an extreme medical condition that would require an abortion to save her life should be allowed to decide FOR HERSELF.

            IOW, YOU don’t get to decide what medical condition is bad enough for her to have an abortion. SHE does. Ain’t freedom in America GREAT!

            Rob

          • http://naver samurai

            Wrong answer as always Rob. We were not founded on the do anything you want nonsense, so shut up with the lies. Abortion is only about population control and nothing else. To tell a woman she can be selfish and choose her lifestyle over her responsibilities is not freedom. It is just plain ignorance, like you. I guess you can say the same about the nurses in the post. Isn’t freedom in America great where you don’t have to do something if it violates your spiritual beliefs? You lose again, butthead. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Andrea B

            It’s a free country (lol), and the 12 nurses that have morals should just quit. I don’t know what the medical staffing situation is in that state, but in Missouri, we are in desparate need of nurses…especially nurses with morals.

            Maybe when the hospital administrators and politicians find out that medical care providers disagree with ending life rather than saving it, the message will be heard.

            Until then, don’t support an employer with your services when they refuse to support your morals. Trust me…there are PLENTY of ‘pro-death’ nurses out there.

            The people that “made a mistake” WILL be able to murder their unborn with help from medically educated people.

      I don’t know how religeous you are, but for the sake of arguement, lets say you are an agnostic. If your job came to you and said you had to read the bible every day, how would you feel?? you need to remember your constitution, it says congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religeon, or prohibiting the FREE EXERCISE there of!!!!!Read your FIRST AMMENDMENT!! the fact that these nurses are against abortion due to religeos reasons makes it illegal for their employer, the state ofr the federal government to force them to perform one!!

Only abortion clinic are to perform abortions and not hospitals. Sorry butthead, but you lose again. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            P.S. How about the Atheist Communist Looney Liberal Union trying to make a big deal about the muslims at a catholic university? No muslims want to go to court or make a scene, but the ACLU does, so couldn’t the same be said about them? Can’t have it both ways, butthead.

          • Robert Smith

            Samurai offers more false information. Let’s watch: ” Besides, this is at a hospital. Only abortion clinic are to perform abortions and not hospitals.”

            Many abortions were in hospitals at one time. In some states a hosiptal was the required provider. That is changing because abortion is safe, particularly in the first trimester. It is certainly safer than carrying to term.

            You can find some background at : “When abortion was legalized in 1973 with the landmark decision of Roe vs. Wade, the majority of abortion providers, 81 percent, were hospitals. Since then, the number of hospitals that perform abortions has steadily declined. According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, only 36 percent of hospitals provided abortion services in 1992. Shortly after Roe, many states required that abortions be performed in hospitals. As the safety and simplicity of the procedure was better understood and as advocates for women lobbied, legislators changed state laws to permit abortion procedures in doctors’ offices and clinics.”

            That can be found at: http://www.aclupa.org/education/clarabellduvallreproductiv/duvallprojectresourcespubl/decliningnumberofhospitals.htm

            Now you know ther reality samurai. Next time it won’t be misinformation (with a slight benefit of doubt that you may simply be ignorant of the facts) but it will be shown to be an outright lie as you have done so many times before.

        From Joe H.: “the fact that these nurses are against abortion due to religeos reasons makes it illegal for their employer, the state ofr the federal government to force them to perform one!!”

        And thus deny a woman in need of an abortion to save her life. That’s not “pro-life”. That’s murder by ignorance and religion. If a woman dies because she needed an abortion and asn’t allowed one because of the worshipers of a brutal god IMO that is actual murder of the born.

If you can believe for one minute that the life growing in a mother’s womb is not human, if you can believe that lifeforms other than human can grow in a mother’s womb, if you DARE to think that you can escape your part in this insanity, then I am telling you right now that you have willingly forfeited your ‘right’ to call yourselves “human.”
    The next time you have a spare minute in your miserable lives, LOOK UP and READ what Margaret Sanger said about abortions. READ why Hitler had so admiration for Margaret Sanger. UNDERSTAND the connection that Sanger, Hitler and Planned NonParenthood SHARE. PRO-DEATHERS, you disgust me.
    I call you what you are. One of your own [an Obummer czar] thinks we should allow retrograde abortions for kids as old as 8 years. Do you KNOW what that MEANS?
    PRO-DEATHERS, you’ve opened a Pandora’s Box that no one can shut. YOU were a part of that monstrosity. You have PROVED that homo sapiens is a word that doubles as an oxymoron. You have much to learn, and very little time to learn it. If you love DEATH that much, be prepared to accept the consequences.

            Jesus attitude to sexual sinners.

            The Pit… A homosexual fell into a pit and couldn’t get himself out. A pharasaic fundamentalist came along and said, “You deserve your pit.”

            A psychologist came along and said, “Accept your pit. That way you’ll be happy.”

            An apostate liberal came along and said, “Your pit is God’s beautiful gift to you.”

            A gay activist came along and said, “Fight for your right to stay in your pit.”

            A researcher came along and said, “Discrimination against pits is illegal.”

            A charismatic came along and said, “Just confess that you’re not in that pit.”

            Respectable people came along and said, “We don’t associate with pit-dwellers.”

            His mother came along and said, “It’s your father’s fault you’re in that pit.”

            His father came along and said, “It’s your mother’s fault you’re in that pit.”

            His wife came along and said, “It’s all my fault you’re in that pit.”

            But Jesus, seeing the man, loved him, and reaching into the pit, put his arms around the man and pulled him out.

          • Jay

            Robert, i can’t speak for those who would use Old Testament law to rationalize the eradication of homosexuals, or any other group that they may find objectionable. Not only do i disagree with them, but i would also point out the fact that doing so, clearly reveals their misunderstanding, and their horrific misuse of scripture. To say they are dangerous, and that they, knowingly/unknowingly misrepresent Christianity, is an understatement! Btw, according to their logic, and according to old testament law, adulterers, fornicators, and a score of others deserve the death sentence. Interesting to note, Jesus didn’t waive capital punishment in anyone’s face, nor did He insist on it, in fact, during His sojourn on this planet, never mentioned it, when relating to sinners! Hmm, what up with that?

          • http://naver samurai

            Read Matthew chapter 23 Jay. Doesn’t Jesus tell them the punishment the pharasies would get for being what they were? Didn’t he say, “…ye generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?” Sounds like eternal capital punishment to me. I only use scriptures against the lifestyle and not for destroying them. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Jay

            Yes, but at the time, Jesus did not condemn, nor, did He call for capital punishment on sinners as evidenced with the woman who was caught in adultery. Let’s keep in mind that God condemns adultery, and fornication as well, and considers such sins to be no-less serious then homosexuality. Why is it that Christians refuse to vehemently condemn adultery, and fornication, as they do homosexuality? But then again, it is not up to us to condemn anyone, as we are all guilty of those sins, for when we look onto a woman to lust, we are guilty of fornication, and so much more, when we condemn others for doing the same, for when we judge and condemn, we expose who we are, in that, we are guilty of the same, when we do so.

        Knock off with the lies, rhetoric, and innuendo. If the nurses do not want to perform such an action, they shouldn’t be forced to do so. I guess you don’t believe in free speech or freedom of religion. What a hypocrate! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      Sorry sc, but there can be cells which are not human life growing in a woman’s womb. Twice I had a mass of cells which were not life. One aborted spontaneously and the other had to be removed by a doctor. And the cancer they found in my Mother when she was 88 was sure not human. So don’t make blanket statements which can be proved untrue. By the way, I did give birth to 3 normal children.

  • Randy131

    Jobs are hard to come by these days, but so are qualified nurses. This new hospital policy is straight from Satan, and has no reason to be required or enforced, so why is it? To be faithful to one’s GOD you must live His precepts and your belief in them, or you are not of Him. May GOD bless these nurses and make them strong in thier decisions to serve Him. It may become a sacrifice, but can this hospital survive without the services of these nurses, or any nurse who serves GOD first and lives by His words? I wonder if these nurses were Muslims if they would also be required to do the same?

    • Robert Smith

      The solution is simple. Grandfather them in. Then replace them with folks who will work within the rules. Eventually it will all work out.

    Because these hospitals are run by morally corrupt individuals whose only fear is that their profit margin will shrink, they have no idea what they are asking of these nurses. The nurses that are objecting to participating in abortion procedures might as well be asked to kill a 2 year old child. It is no different to them: both are acts of murder. I hope and pray that everyone will speak up and support the Alliance Defense Fund. They are a worthy organization and the only ones who will step up to defend people like these precious nurses. God bless them all.

      Actually it is different from the woman’s perspective. It is somehting INSIDE her that if she doesn’t want it can be put outside.

      When a child is born ANY member of society who cares can take care of it. Society has decided that once born it is important, unless you are a Republican and then health care is out the window, school food is out the window, etc.

      OK, the REALITY is that pregnancy and being a completely trained medical professional are separate issues. For a medical professional there need to be set standards and profisency to assure the quality of care for each patient. Sometimes an abortion is a medical necessity to save a life and to have staff ill equipped to deal with such a circumstance for religious reasons IMO is criminal.

          Joe H, ‘Pro Choice’ is a misleading term cooked up for brainwashed, pc Nazis. Pro Choice is the same as PRO DEATH. They simply don’t have the guts or the character to admit it. To be PRO DEATH means you have been brainwashed.
          One of the many flaws in that idiot’s paradise concept is the FACT that PRO DEATHERS refuse to admit that they could have been aborted (to make someone else “happy”). Good luck finding a PRO DEATH schmuck who knows what is involved in an abortion.
          It’s like something out of a Hannibal Lecter movie. Kudos for anyone who flatly rejects abortion(s).
          Pity the misguided, useful idiots who think they’re doing something good. They don’t know the difference between good and evil, and they don’t care. They’re “too busy” to think about it.

          However as I’ve explained before, I’m pro-choice in many issues.

          I’m pro-choice on gun contrl. You can own / carry a gun anytime you want as a responsible citizen while the same time acknolwledging that some people are criminals and should not have guns.

          I’m pro-choice on recreational drugs like pot.

          I’m pro-choice on end of life issues.

          I’m pro-choice on choosing a religion, or not.

Remember that it is the libs that want to take away your guns and not the conservatives and Christians. You don’t remember Hitlery trying to pass the U.N. Small Arms Treaty? You know, the one that would have everyone give their guns over to the U.N.? You also notice that every conservative voted against it and was supported by the libs.

Already the government is moving to take colonoscopies off the books for preventive exams for colon/rectal cancer. They are saying the “finger” is good enough! I can guess which finger.
        The system as it now stands is not perfect but it does allow some freedom to move and innovate. Obamacare does penalize a person whether doctor or patient for paying outside the system. As a matter of fact penalized even if done for free. Sounds wonderful to me.

If they are not in the right place in life –adoption is the answer. Why kill the one growing inside you? Your child . We do have a window to the womb ultrasounds!!

    If you read or watch media, you can’t miss the insults. Today, both, left and right have even been hurling insults, calling Americans, who are using their rights to free speech and free assembly to speak out against questionable White House proposals, insulting names including, “un-American,” “thugs,” “racists,” “nazis,” “political terrorists,” etc.

    The reason for using insults and illogic is to shut down public debate. Insults are an attack on public debate. The use of illogic is an attack on public debate.

    By intentionally using illogic in debate with the opposing side, meaningful debate is destroyed. The public, unable to tell who’s winning the argument, is puzzled. The benefit to some of the left/right is that they are saying to all, “Join us and win power and money. Nothing else is relevant.”

    Yes, there are those who are fooled by the illogic of the arguments – e.g. many high schoolers and college students to whom these arguments have been preached by some teachers, and who fall for it.

    But that’s not the case with all the intellectual leadership of the left/right, many of whom are too aware to be fooled. The more profound thinkers on the left/right understand that the illogic is being used intentionally, to achieve a given goal, namely to confound all logical debate, and issue a siren call saying, “join us, and we will help you, and nothing else matters.”

    Public debate works. The truth defeats the purposes of the unscrupulous. Therefore there are some who want to shut down and destroy public debate.

    STRATEGY TO COUNTER THE ATTACK ON PUBLIC DEBATE

    First, don’t respond to insults with insults. That’s exactly what they want. Because then they can claim, “The argument broke down into name-calling, and nothing was proven on either side. ” Ignore their insults and clobber them with the facts.

    Second, bear in mind that most people in this country, regardless of political party, love America, and that civil public debate that communicates the facts to them will win. That’s why some in the leadership on the left, and right, are trying so hard to shut civil public debate down.

      Hey Jay,

      I find it insulting when someone says they want me to do something because their brutal god thinks I should do it their way. Their god who allegedly gave human beings free will as his followers take it away.

        I will admit that there is a radical fringe who may have the best of intentions, but seem to execute those intentions in a questionable manner. As you said, this is a free country, and people should not be forced, or coerced to do anything that goes against their beliefs, whether religious or not! As pertaining to the issue being discussed, though abortion is lawful, a medical practitioner should not be forced to participate if they so choose. Conversely, i regretfully have to admit, since the law has legalized abortion, and until otherwise, no medical practitioner should be denied to perform said procedure. This does not mean that i condone abortion, absolutely not! And in the past i have voted against it. The result of that vote is my Son, Julian.

        That is the Doctrine of Free Will and Freedom to Chose, which means do you believe in God and serve him yes or no. Sheesh Rob, anyone can tell you that. AMOF I’m glad my wife and I never talked about abortion. I thank God everyday for the 4 children I have. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          samurai,
          I know very well how you feel. I have Three kids and one of them is mentally handicapped. my wife and I never even spoke of abortion or terminating either. It was illegal at the time here, but we could have gone elsewhere. NO WAY, NO HOW!!!
