"The state House passed a bill today that would allow Missouri health care workers to refuse to participate in certain medical procedures .... The bill now moves to the state Senate for consideration. ... Under the proposal, doctors, nurses and other health care providers could opt out of certain medical procedures or research that goes against their religious, moral or ethical principles. ... Those who claim 'conscience rights' exemptions can’t be punished or discriminated against for not participating." [editor's note: English translation of that last: "You can't be fired for refusing to do your job." The word "rights" should have been left out of it altogether - TLK] (03/12/13)
