A New York nurse and devout catholic who was allegedly lied to by Mount Sinai Hospital bosses and forced to assist in a late term abortion is suing the hospital.
The nurse claims she was forced to choose between her religious convictions and her job when Mount Sinai Hospital ordered her to assist in a late-term abortion against her will.
The hospital even exaggerated the patient's condition and claimed the woman could die if the nurse, a devout Catholic, did not follow orders, the nurse alleges in a lawsuit.
"It felt like a horror film unfolding," said Catherina Cenzon-DeCarlo, 35, who claims she has had gruesome nightmares and hasn't been able to sleep since the May 24 incident.

Bosses told the weeping Cenzon-DeCarlo the patient was 22 weeks into her pregnancy and had preeclampsia, a condition marked by high blood pressure that can lead to seizures or death if left untreated.
The supervisor "claimed that the mother could die if [Cenzon-DeCarlo] did not assist in the abortion."
But the nurse, the niece of a Filipino bishop, contends that the patient's life was not in danger. She argued that the patient was not even on magnesium therapy, a common treatment for preeclampsia, and did not have problems indicating an emergency.

Those of us in the medical profession with religious convictions aginst the murder of the unborn need to take a stand and say no to intimidating employers. There is coming a time and is already here when each of us will be tested by our Lord for our beliefs and we must be ready to let our conscience and religious convictions be our guide and stay in the Word of God. No job is worth having to live with the nightmare day after day of knowing you assisted in the murder of the unborn and if enough medical personnel say no to abortions, hospitals will have to get someone else to do their dirty work for them.
