Vanderbilt changes policy on nursing students taking part in abortions
January 25, 2011
Two prospective nursing students at Vanderbilt University filed a complaint with the federal government after refusing to sign a form that states that nursing students “may be providing nursing care for women who are having ... procedures, including termination of pregnancy.”
A day after the Alliance Defense Fund filed suit on the students’ behalf, the university reversed course, stating that “no health-care provider is required to participate in a procedure terminating a pregnancy if such participation would be contrary to an individual’s religious beliefs or moral convictions.”
