Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley was asked about conscience protection for Catholics working in the medical field. Here is what Coakley, who is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat, had to say.
This statement clearly violates the medical conscience clause that protects citizens from having to perform medical “services” (such as abortion, vasectomies, distributing birth control, ect.) due to religious or conscience reasons without being afraid of being punished or discriminated against.
For someone who is in charge of enforcing the laws
for the state of Massachusetts, Coakley is not doing a very good job of protecting those she is supposed to be fighting for.
Coakley would probably not see anything wrong with this
