tl;dr: a pro-life woman applies for a nursing job at a family planning clinic that requires nurses to prescribe birth control to patients, but refused to do so because she believes that birth control = abortions. so, she’s suing them for not hiring her for a job she refuses to do.
Well, they did take away her Jebus (and SCOTUS) granted right to shame and harass women and other people with uteruses for their reproductive choices. HOW DARE THEY?!
THIS IS SO CONFUSING
WHO THINKS THEY WILL BE HIRED FOR A JOB THAT THEY CANNOT (WILL NOT) DO
WHO THINKS THEY SHOULD GET PAID TO NOT DO A JOB
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND HOW DID THEY GRADUATE KINDERGARTEN
I swear. If some ass-backward court allows this to succeed I will burn this mutha to the ground!
x.x; We can save your life, but that doesn’t mean we can read the Constitution and understand it.
Ugh, nurses like her make the rest of us look dumb, and it puts politics where it doesn’t need to be. I don’t understand her claim. That’s like telling the HR person or nurse manager you’re a Jehova’s Witness, and you can’t do blood transfusions as in you won’t even touch or verify blood or blood products with another nurse. It’s fine if you don’t want it for yourself, but you have to put that aside when you’re not the patient. You want to minister to people? Fine. No one is stopping you from praying at the bedside with your patient or for your patient, but when you state in your email that you can’t do functions of your job that are a given, you’re basically telling them that you’re only willing to do part of the job and not all of it.
Her disclosure is not the same as a nurse showing up at an interview for the ER or the ICU who says, “I’m relatively proficient at IVs. I’m not the greatest, but I go after every opportunity.” Why? Because it means the nurse in question is willing to learn to perform all the functions of her job. It means she/he knows what she/he needs to work on.
I’ve worked with Seventh Day Adventists who work on the Sabbath, Jehova’s Witnesses who hang blood, and I was raised Catholic and worked at a Baptist facility.
It’s not about you, it’s about the patient, and honestly, if you can’t do that, I don’t know why you’re even there.
