Protect conscience rights of doctors and hospitals in New Mexico
No one, including doctors, nurses, and hospitals, should be forced to violate their own consciences. However, some abortion advocates are fighting to force medication professionals to participate in abortion even if it violates their personal beliefs.
Next week the New Mexico legislature is set to vote on SB 282, which would force hospitals and the doctors in them to perform abortions even if it violates their conscience. Under this law, doctors who believe that abortion is murdering a baby will be forced to participate in murdering that baby!
Please sign this petition now to the New Mexico legislature demanding that they vehemently defeat this evil legislation!
SB 282 is titled the Patient Protection Act but this bill isn’t about protecting and empowering patients, it’s about protecting and empowering the abortion agenda. Under this legislation, a woman who is denied an abortion by a doctor or a hospital has the legal ability to sue for denial of “care.”
This must be stopped. Many doctors are painfully aware of the humanity of the unborn. This is due to advances in modern science.
Medical technology is demonstrating the humanity of the unborn in striking and profound ways. Ultrasound images capture babies sucking their thumbs, kicking, and stretching inside their mother’s bodies.
Today, we can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that at the moment of conception new human life begins. The tiny little human has all of the DNA, or programing, to direct their own growth into a fully functioning adult—unless someone snuffs out their life—from the moment they come into existence.
And yet, lawmakers want to force doctors to perform abortions no matter what their personal convictions on the matter are.
This is a complete double standard. When a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood was recently asked if a pregnancy represented a human or a clump of tissue she stated, “It’s up to each individual to decide what they believe.” Except, apparently, if you are a doctor who decides that a fetus is a human being. Then according to abortion advocates, it doesn’t matter what you believe—you have to kill the baby anyway.
Please stand with us in condemning this legislation and demanding that the New Mexico legislature vehemently reject it.
