Lawyer for Pro-Life NJ Nurses Challenges Idea That Accommodations Have Been Made to Meet Their Objections to Participating in Abortions
David Andrusko at National Right to Life News: This hospital statement “indicates a policy shift from the university’s initial stance,” according to David Giambusso. True? Interestingly, when his story appeared elsewhere, a paragraph was conveniently omitted challenging that optimistic conclusion. “’The hospital filed a brief last week asking the court’s permission to continue bullying nurses into participating in elective abortion cases,” [ADF] lawyer Matt Bowman said in an e-mail. “Only by guaranteeing the court and the nurses that it has reversed its position would it prove that UMDNJ might finally be interested in following the law. Until then, ADF will continue to fight the illegal discrimination against these pro-life nurses.” I’ve been unable to get a hold of Mr. Bowman to find out exactly what was in the hospital’s brief. Stay tuned.
