Sara Hellwege, a student from Atlanta at the Frontier Nursing University, applied as a nurse/midwife to the Tampa Family Health Center. In an email exhange, Director of Human Resources Chad L. Lindsay, saw Hellwege was affiliated with the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) and asked if this would prevent her from prescribing contraception. She quickly replied:

Yes, I am a member of AAPLOG. Due to religious guidelines, I am able to counsel women regarding all forms of contraception, however, cannot Rx it unless pathology exists — however have no issue with barrier methods & sterilization.

To which Lindsay answered: “Due to the fact we are a Title X organization and you are a member of AAPLOG, we would be unable to move forward in the interviewing process.”

Hellwege has filed complaints with the center, the EEOC, and HHS, as well as a federal lawsuit. Says Alliance Defending Freedom’s Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden: “Willingness to commit an abortion cannot be a litmus test for employment. All we are asking is for the health center to obey the law and not make a nurse’s employment contingent upon giving up her respect for life.”
