A series of U.S. courts have ruled against a baker who was taken to court because he would not make a wedding case for a gay couple. Now this matter is before the U.S. Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court rules against this baker, the article maintains, it will undermine the ability of religious people to refuse to carry out acts that their conscience will not allow in other areas of vital interest.
“Such compelled acts could (and already have, in a few cases) require doctors and nurses to participate in controversial procedures or interventions such as abortion and assisted suicides, prescribe and/or dispense contraception, provide assisted reproduction procedures and therapies made from human embryonic or fetal stem cells, perform sex change surgeries, etc. against their religious or moral beliefs.”
