Refusing to provide care should be illegal, and this bill legalizes that. In many states, there's already only a handful of clinics still open that can still provide abortions, let's not drop that number even lower by removing any consequences for refusing patients proper care.
If you go into medicine, your job is to do the least harm... when someone wants an abortion or birth control, it is your job to provide it. You didn't want to? Then why did you go into medicine? Abortions are a hundred fold less risky than childbirth. Don't pretend they're not... they're safer in a medical facility with proper protocols than any birth.
