A new Trump administration rule schedule to go into effect on Nov. 22 has now been blocked. The Hill reported the following:

A federal judge in New York on Wednesday struck down a Trump administration rule that would make it easier for health care providers to refuse to perform services, such as abortions, that conflict with their religious beliefs.

District Judge Paul Engelmayer invalidated the rule on multiple grounds, including a finding that it violated the Constitution’s spending clause by allowing the administration to cut off funds approved by Congress to providers who do not comply with the rule by forcing employees to perform services to which they object.

    I just retired after over 50 years in nursing. No one should make you do any kind of procedure that you are morally and ethically against.

      Right God does not make mistakes if your born a Male or female that is Gods intent for you. If you are pregnant that is one of Gods children and not for you to murder. So I applaud any doctors that reject such procedures.

    A medical person was hired to do a job and knew what the job would entail before they were hired. They have to do what they were hired to do. It;s not like choosing not to make a cake for a gay couple!!

      Not true, Janet. Medical personnel are not Nazi’s where morals and humanity meant nothing.

    If you don’t want to perform abortions, find another field in healthcare. Pretty simple stuff.

    Abortion on demand is not health care
    It’s murder of someone’s beating heart.

    Abortion is murder. Plain and simple. No nurse or doctor should be forced to commit or be an accomplice to murder. You want an abortion? Seek a Liberal doctor or nurse They obviously have no moral compass, values or conscience

    I am a nurse with 56-years of dedication. I am against abortion unless the woman’s life is i danger. I will refuse to do anything that is immoral and against the teachings of the Old and New Testaments.
