Nebraska Revised Statute 38-3424

Chapter 38 Section 3424

38-3424.

Abortion counseling or referral; act; how construed; refusal to participate in counseling or referral; how treated.

The Genetic Counseling Practice Act shall not be construed to require any genetic counselor to counsel or refer for abortion, and licensing of a genetic counselor shall not be contingent upon his or her participation in counseling or referral with respect to abortion. The refusal of a genetic counselor to participate in counseling or referral with respect to abortion shall not form the basis for any claim of damages on account of the refusal or for any disciplinary or recriminatory action against the genetic counselor if the genetic counselor informs the patient that the genetic counselor will not participate in counseling or referral with respect to abortion and offers to direct the patient to the online directory of licensed genetic counselors maintained by the department.
