Nobody should be forced to choose between following their conscience or pursuing their profession. Dr. Jachimowicz proved to be a reliable, professional practitioner for the many patients under her care. The notion that her employer could not accommodate her deeply held convictions seems absurd, especially since there is a lack of medical doctors in Norway. The previous judgment sent a clear message to the Norwegian authorities that conscience is a fundamental right that goes to the very heart of what it means to be human”
