New legal source promises dose of protection for doctors and nurses

There is a new resource for medical professionals, doctors and nurses, who are determined to follow their beliefs and their conscience.

"We issued a two-page guide on how to file a federal conscience complaint to protect conscience rights for medical professionals," says Rachel Morrison of the Ethics and Public Policy Center. "The guide explains protections under federal conscience laws as well as religious non-discrimination and accommodation rights in employment."

Alliance Defending Freedom, Christ Medicus Foundation, and Religious Freedom Institute are partnering with EPPC on this new resource.

Morris says medical professionals are also finding themselves facing huge moral issues, such as assisted suicide, assisting in abortions, and hormone therapy and life-altering surgeries for transgender youths.

Concerns about conscience rights violations were exposed during the COVID-19 pandemic, too, over vaccine shots, mask-wearing, and medicines such as Ivermectin.

"The more that the federal government and state governments are requiring medical professionals to participate and assist in procedures that violate their conscience or religious beliefs,” Morris insists, “the more medical professionals need to know about their protections under federal law.”
