In 10th grade ethics class we had this day where people that worked in various professions came in with a problem that involved them and we discussed it. One lady was a nurse at a hospital on the maturnity ward and one lady came in for a partial birth abortion or something similar. Basically the baby was delivered and the mother didn't want it/wanted to abort it so the nurses were told to leave it alone. The nurse that was talking to us had to decide whether to care for the pre-maturely delivered baby or leave it lying there to die. I guess this situation fits with this thread b/c obviously her religious beliefs told her to save the baby. But her job was to leave it alone, per Dr.'s orders.
I was sort of thinking of this when I read your comment and decided that you're right - I could NEVER work at a hospital that killed babies. I know that's only one of the many medicine vs. religion issues that could arise, but it's good enough for me!
That has got to be among the sickest and most disturbing things I've ever read.
