Refuse to participate in an abortion; get fired

So much for conscience or constitutionally protected religious beliefs. Here's a case were a nurse refused to participate in abortion and got fired for her beliefs.

In Illinois, according to a Sun-Times op-ed, Senate Bill 1564 "would force every medical professional and pregnancy resource center to help a woman obtain an abortion by providing her contact information for abortion clinics and describing the “benefits” of abortion." With a shortage of nurses in Illinois, this law makes no sense. Other than to appease fanatics who insist on people violating their consciences when it comes to abortion.  No dissent will be tolerated, no respect will be given to diverse views. A hypocritical position by pro-choice "progressives" whose principle No. 1 to live by is "diversity."

The bill should be vetoed by Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner.
