wait a minute…anyone notice that those women are minorities…the Liberals would love this! oh wait another minute, they don’t unless they follow and obey them.
a) Why the fuck was that nurse allowed to run around the fucking hospital with a dead fetus? Like first of all who the fuck does that, second of all that’s illegal as fuck and violates so many rules it makes my head spin (but leave it to conservatives to be okay with rule breaking only with it encourages their fucked up rhetoric) and just… okay seriously, is no one else bothered by someone running around with a fetus playing show and tell?
b) IF YOU WON’T DO YOUR JOB KNOWING WHAT IT ENTAILS BASED ON A FUCKING PERSONAL OPINION (they were given warning and could have transferred hospitals, read the story if you can stomach it), YOU SHOULD LOSE YOUR FUCKING JOB. END OF GODDAMN STORY. A vegan who is a waiter and refuses to serve meat has no job being a waiter.
c) A+ using the women’s race like you conservatives actually give two shits about minorities unless you can use the manipulatively. Great job, totally sneaky, definitely persuasive.
I have A LOT of problems with this story. And so many questions.
A lot of what the nurse quoted the most says doesn’t add up. A fetus in a major hospital wouldn’t be placed in a bed pan, it would be placed with biological waste after an abortion. None of what she says happened makes sense.
Why was a nurse walking around with a dead fetus in her hand outside of a surgical room and showing it to people?
There had to have been something else going on with these nurses if the hospital administrators got involved and had to tell them to do their jobs.
This is such a bizarre story and I hope every single one of them gets fired for putting patients at risk.
I also thought this was SUPER rich:
The nurses of Fe’s unit are responsible for monitoring, medicating, and placating patients going into and coming out of surgery. That means a lot of bedside comfort, encouragement, and interaction with both patients and their families, so conversations between coworkers tend to be quick exchanges in the hallway or on break. What the nurses share, more than close friendship, is delight in and commitment to a job they love.
“It’s a noble job,” says Fe. “Very fulfilling… a healing profession. Everything you do for the patient just makes them feel better, and satisfies my entire being, because I’ve helped someone.”
And then a little bit later:
“I always tell them, ‘I’ll be praying for you, and I hope that this is the last time I’ll see you doing this kind of procedure.’ I can see in their faces how guilty they feel, the guilt in their hearts.”
Because when you’re recovering from your abortion, it’s comforting to hear that your nurse is judging you and tells you how guilty you are, amirite? That’s SUPER comforting and TOTES makes them feel better.
I also think it’s hilarious that in that same first quote, it says how dedicated and committed to their job these nurses are when they aren’t even willing to assist patients who are pre or post-op from an abortion. Read that again. They aren’t even willing to be the nurse for patients who are pre or post-op from their abortions, let alone assist during the procedure yet they are SOOOO committed to their jobs. That’s ridiculous. It should not matter what procedure a patient is there for, if you are not willing to be their nurse for their pre or post-op care, then you shouldn’t fucking be one.
I hope they are all fired for being non-compliant because providing pre and post-op care to patients who’ve gotten procedures you don’t approve of is NOT something that is covered by a conscience clause. It’s a form of discrimination and they should be fired for it.
“A lot of people don’t realize… we usually see somebody at their worst,” Beryl says. “They’re not perky, happy – they’re ailing and hurting. They just want somebody to be there. I can make a difference. I can help in whatever little way. I find that very gratifying.”
- and the article’s use of “she” exclusively to refer to the activities of “a nurse” was incredibly grating.
