SB 292 would allow health-care professionals and institutions to refuse to provide prescriptions for contraceptives and abortifacients or participate in health-care services that violate their conscience, and would immunize health-care professionals and institutions from civil and criminal liability based on their refusal to provide prescriptions or participate in health-care services that violate their conscience.

The bill would also prevent any kind of discrimination against health-care professionals who refuse to participate in health-care services that violate their conscience.

STATUS

Similar to HB 383 and SB 276, both of which failed to pass in 2013.
