The plaintiff demands damages for battery, constitutional violations and negligence.
One nurse I ran into once wouldn't take my BP cause I had an abortion and she saw that in my file. These HHS rules scare me cause that was two years ago what would happen to that nurse now under these HHS regs?
I am quite literally appalled by what you have reported here, though to some degree I can't say I am surprised anymore. How is it that a nurse decides not to take your blood pressure--a routine medical check that provides basic, critical information and helps identify potentially life-threatening conditions? Because you once had an abortion? In other words, there was no action involved here from what I can see that indicates a "conscienctious objection" in that moment...no "abortion activity" in which this provider was asked to be engaged.
Instead, this provider decided to withold care in a form of retroactive rebuke for a lawful, legal, moral, private decision you made at some point in the past.
This is precisely the problem. Through both the new HHS rule and through the lax enforcement of critical standards and medical ethics in at least some places before this we are encouraging people who clearly do not understand their larger obligations to take both law and medicine into their own hands.
