Nurse in Canada stands up for what is right

Bill Whatcott, a licensed practical nurse in Canada protested outside a Planned Parenthood six years ago and apparently several individuals in the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses thought he shouldn't have done such a thing. Thus the SALPN has suspended his license and fined him $15,000 just for standing up for truth.

Three cheers for Bill Whatcott and what a disgrace the SALPN has brought upon itself.

Thankfully, the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal ruled that the attempt by SALPN to silence Mr. Whatcott was "unconstitutional," but it may not be over. It is pretty sad that nurses in Canada are at risk for losing their jobs just for helping save lives. Isn't that what nurses are suppose to do?
