Nurse forced to aid in abortion sues hospital


A Filipina nurse has filed charges against a hospital for allegedly forcing her to assist in a late-term abortion procedure in Brooklyn, New York City.  [if someone forces you to wrok against your will that is tantamount to slavery isn't it?  Do you need shackles and a whip to fall into that category?]

The New York Post reported that the May 24 incident was traumatic for Catherina Cenzon-DeCarlo, 35.

"It felt like a horror film unfolding," said Cenzon-DeCarlo in a report by the New York Post. [sure it would look like one.  Animal rights activist cringe at the sight of a pig, chicken or cow being butchered for their meat.  How would you react to a human being being murdered inside the womb of her own mother, with her own mother's consent?  All in the name of rights? and choice?] 

Cenzon-DeCarlo was reportedly threatened by Mount Sinai Hospital with insubordination and patient-abandonment if she refuses to assist in the abortion procedure. She also claimed that the hospital has cut her overtime shifts.

A devout catholic, [see the connection? Devout Catholic, Pro-life? Hats off the a fellow Pinoy Catholic standing up and even suffering for her Faith.  God will reward you immensely!] Cenzon-DeCarlo is a married mother of a year-old baby and niece of a Filipino bishop.

She said her bosses at the hospital reportedly exaggerated about the condition [Sounds like the Mona Lisa Project undercover video about a Planned Parenthood counselor telling a Mona Lisa undercover agent that abortion pictures are not "real".  I posted it here.] like the of the patient who was 22 weeks into her pregnancy

In her lawsuit, Cenzon-DeCarlo claimed that the hospital told her the patient had preeclampsia, a condition that could lead to seizures or death if left untreated.
However, she refuted this and said the patient was not even given magnesium therapy which was a common treatment for preeclampsia.

She found out later that the hospital's own records described the procedure "Category II," which is not considered immediately life threatening.

The incident prompted Cenzon-DeCarlo to file a grievance with her union, the report said.

"I emigrated to this country in the belief that here religious freedom is sacred. [Your religious freedom is allowed in the US except if your a Catholic standing up for life!] Doctors and nurses shouldn't be forced to abandon their beliefs and participate in abortion in order to keep their jobs," she said in the report.

Cenzon-DeCarlo is a native of the Philippines and moved to New York in 2001. She started working at Mount Sinai Hospital as an operating nurse in 2004.
