Opinion: Abortion referral bill threatens basic health services


Opinion: Abortion referral bill threatens basic health services
Chicago Sun-Times

A policy shift added providing abortion referrals and processing prescriptions for abortion inducing drugs to Ms. Mendozaâs job responsibilities. When she alerted county officials she could not ethically participate in an abortion, she was forced to resign, losing her livelihood to support her family. (Ms. Mendoza is now suing Winnebago County).OPINIONMore devout nurses and doctors like Ms. Mendoza could be forced out of the health care industry for abiding by their personal ethics if Gov. Bruce Rauner fails to veto Senate Bill 1564.This bill 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 âbenefitsâ of abortion.According to the Heritage Foundation, by 2030, Illinois will have a shortage of an estimated 18,240 nurses and 1,063 physicians, meaning longer wait times, higher costs, and poorer quality of health care for Illinoisans.
