Polling Reveals Majority of Americans Support Conscience Rights for Healthcare Providers

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops this week reported the results of polling that shows a majority of Americans support conscience rights for healthcare workers. More specifically, the majority of Americans believe that doctors and nurses should not be forced to participate in abortion or gender reassignment surgery. "The practice of medicine depends on those courageous and generous enough to serve all people-especially the poor and marginalized-with the highest ethical standards. If we exclude people of faith from the medical profession, Americans will suffer, especially those most in need," the bishops said upon release of the poll.
