    There is an article on MSNBC, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13834214/from/RS.5/ that reports on "A medical crisis of conscience"

    The premise is that medical professionals are declining to provide abortion services, citing their religious beliefs.

    Quoting from the article: 'But [I removed her name], believes doctors and nurses should never let their personal values interfere with patient care. Her doctor refused to give her the morning-after pill, citing religious objections. "I was incredibly angry and just scared to death," [she] said. "I think it's absolutely wrong to impose your religious beliefs on someone else."'

    It is my concept that by requiring her doctor to to provide a potential abortion pill, this person was imposing her religious beliefs on someone else, negating her own statement. An appropriate response would have been to go to another doctor whose beliefs match hers.

    Abortion is murder. Plain and simple. why would anyone want to participate in it? May God bless our physicians who stand against this atrocity.
