Can A Hospital Tell A Doctor To Stop Talking About Abortion?

“It’s a provision that has been commonly used by and associated with those who oppose abortion,” says Gretchen Borchelt of the National Women’s Law Center, which helped file the complaint.

Borchelt also says MedStar’s security argument doesn’t make sense. According to the complaint, the hospital did hire a security guard for the family planning department, and put in cameras there. But Borchelt says it ignored other suggestions from the department.
