Congress considers "Conscience Protection Act" with Illinois nurse's support
The state measure, which went into effect in January 2017, requires medical personnel to provide the following information if a patient requests an abortion:
-Refer the patient to a facility that performs abortions.
-Transfer the patient to a facility that performs abortion.
-Provide the patient with a list of other health care providers who perform abortions.
Conservatives' dissatisfaction with the Illinois measure and others requiring medical personnel to participate in abortions at the state level is now being mulled about in the U.S. Congress. The "Conscience Protection Act" is an effort pro-life lawmakers are pushing to become federal law.
