Illinois Nurse Threatens to Withhold Care From Conservative Males

Nurse THREATENS Conservatives – This Could Cost Her Her Medical License

(NewsReady.com) – After the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) handed down the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling on June 24, some people reacted poorly. Justices were doxxed, riots took place in Portland, and pro-life activists were threatened. An advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) allegedly posted something online that led to her resignation.

On Sunday, June 26, the Twitter account for Libs of TikTok posted a tweet from a Mattoon, Illinois, APRN who allegedly works at Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center. The female healthcare worker said that she could decide whether or not to prescribe patients’ meds. So, she decided she will no longer give prescriptions for sexual health medication to white, conservative men. She said they need to “ask God for the power to rise,” essentially declaring the level of care she provides is based on the patient’s race and political beliefs.

The hospital responded to the remarks on Twitter, saying that isn’t the position of its facility. The statement went on to say all patients are cared for no matter what their race, religion, sexual orientation, etc., and said the matter was being addressed. The facility later announced the employee resigned.

According to the hospital’s statement announcing her resignation, the APRN reportedly apologized for her remarks, saying she was “deeply sorry” for her social media post. She said her “hateful words” did not align with how she treated her patients. CEO Jerry Esker also responded to the controversy, reiterating that the medical facility cares for everyone equally and reassured the public that “discriminatory practices are not tolerated.”
