Republican reasons for Abortion Doctor Admitting Privilege Laws exposed, with new bill to allow hospitals, doctors and nurses right to refuse emergency care.

Remember this line of BS from state Republicans trying to ban abortion by requiring admitting privileges:
The law's supporters argue that admitting privileges will ensure women get prompt and proper care if they need to go to a hospital.
They’re so concerned, aren’t they? And yet, just today in Congress, Sen. David Vitter introduced this conflicting bill:
“Allow hospitals, doctors and nurses to refuse to provide or participate in abortion care for women, even in cases of emergency.”
So much for “ensuring prompt proper care,” suckers.  

This is one of many "conscience clause" ideas that would turn our health care system into a strictly voluntary one for doctors, nurses and hospitals. No guarantees and no certainty when it comes to public health.
