Judge Rules Clinicians Cannot Object to Abortions on Moral or Religious Grounds

Summary from AllSides News Team

A federal judge in New York rejected a rule Wednesday that would have permitted doctors and nurses to refuse performing an abortion on a moral or religious basis. The rule, proposed by the Trump administration and set to go into effect later this month, was opposed in several lawsuits, including one signed by 19 states, the District of Columbia and three local governments. While the majority of coverage presented both sides of the issue, left and center-rated outlets tended to focus coverage more on the lawsuits targeting the rule and the arguments against it; most right-rated outlets instead focused coverage on arguments in favor of the rule.
