An example of imposing pro-abortion view on Christians and loss of religious liberty

As society continues to secularize, the secular Left becomes less tolerant of those who refuse to toe the Left's line on issues like marriage and abortion. An example of this is a proposed bill in Victoria, Australia which would require medical personnel to perform abortions or make abortion referrals.

The effect if such a law goes into place? Shutting down all Catholic hospital maternity wards and emergency rooms in Australia, according to the
Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne Denis Hart. It's estimated that one-third of births are carried out in Catholic hospitals.

Historically, churches were the prime movers behind efforts to care for the sick by establishing hospitals. Now the secular elites are apparently willing to force church run hospitals to shut down.

No doubt similar efforts will increasingly be pushed in American society if we continue in a secularist drift.

The lines are increasingly being drawn between those who seek to honor the biblical witness and those who don't. Nominal Christianity is increasingly becoming a non option.
