MONTVALE, NJ, Mar 11 (  The March issue of RN magazine, a highly respected publication for the nursing profession, says that over 61% of nurses in the US refuse to work in an OB/GYN unit where abortions are performed. A poll conducted by the magazine also revealed that over two-thirds of registered nurses believe that partial-birth abortion should be outlawed.

Pro-lifers are not surprised at such figures, noting that nurses are among the best suited individuals in society to appreciate the humanity of unborn children. Instead of pointing to this obvious rationale, however, the magazine suggests that this shift in attitude is due to a “fear of being harassed or physically harmed.” Pro-aborts have been making this claim for a long time, but to date they have been unable to produce any hard evidence to legitimize this kind of provocative and anti-scientific conjecture.
