We’ve decided, as a nation, that a woman who wants an abortion should be able to get an abortion. We’ve decided that she has the right to do whatever her conscience allows, and that her freedom to choose or not choose abortion is a choice that should be protected. This bill simply confirms that healthcare providers have consciences, too, and that their choice to participate or not participate in abortions is a choice that should be protected.
