Protect conscience freedom in healthcare - S. 401
Freedom2Care polling (www.freedom2care.org/polling) demonstrates the pervasiveness of discrimination against health professionals and students who decline to participate in unethical procedures such as abortion. Pro-life health professionals rely on federal conscience protection laws when they face loss of career, position and privileges simply for following the pro-life Hippocratic oath or life-protecting biblical principles.
While current federal law provides for healthcare conscience freedom in general--especially regarding abortion, sterilization and assisted suicide--it does not yet provide a way for victims of unlawful discrimination to get justice in court.
