U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement after the DOJ dismissed a case from a University of Vermont Medical Center nurse who was forced to perform an abortion in direct violation of her religious and moral objections.
"This isn't just a shocking failure by the Department of Justice, it's a slap in the face to basic conscience rights. The law protects health care providers from being forced to perform procedures they find morally objectionable and the DOJ ought to see this case through."
