Today’s Lady News: Group Complains Nursing Program Teaches Students About Abortion
- A Christian legal group has filed a civil rights complaint against a Vanderbilt University nursing program for putting a statement on its application that informs students the program will involve interacting with women who may have just had an abortion and suggesting if they cannot handle that, they should consider applying to a different program. “It is important that you are aware of this aspect of care and give careful consideration to your ability to provide compassionate care to women in these situations,” the application states. “If you feel you cannot provide care to women during this type of event, we encourage you to apply to a different track of the Nurse Residency Program to explore opportunities that may best fit your skills and career goals.” The complaint was filed on behalf of an unnamed Mississippi woman. Two Tennessean law experts said Vanderbilt has not actually done anything wrong. [The Tennessean]
