talk about thinking you should be hired even when you are not qualified does she have a bit of a persecution complex? http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/07/19 ... plied-for/ A stridently pro-life woman is suing a family planning clinic for not hiring her because she wouldnt work with birth control despite that being a major part of the job. Sara Hellwege was turned down for a nursing job at the clinic after she admitted to her prospective employer that she was morally opposed to doing any part of the job which required her to administer or assign birth control to women who came in. This posed a pretty serious problem with regards to her capacity to do the job given the fact that this was a clinic which primarily served as a resource for men and women looking for contraceptives and birth control. In a series of emails (published here), Hellwege converses with Chad Lindsey, the human resources director of Tampa Family Health Centers. After asking about her qualifications and other administrative issues, Lindsey notices that on her resume, Hellwege listed her membership in the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He asked if her pro-life beliefs would affect her ability to work at the clinic, citing its Title X status explicitly making it a facility which provides contraceptive services. Hellweges response is enough to immediately make it clear that she is a terrible fit for the job: Hi Mr. Lindsey, Thanks for such a timely response. Yes, I am a member of AAPLOG. Due to religious guidelines, I am able to counsel women regarding all forms of contraception, however, cannot [prescribe] it unless pathology exists however have no issue with barrier methods & sterilization. She then asks if there are any positions available in other areas which wouldnt require her to work around her religious issues with birth control. Lindsey politely sends her a final email which explains that given the clinics focus, there didnt seem to be a way to feasibly hire her considering her moral objections. He also notes that some of the other jobs she was after were already filled and so employment wasnt a possibility. Rather than move on to other applications, Hellwege decided to wage war against the unfair treatment she thinks she received from the clinic. According to her reasoning, anything less than hiring her and working around her moral objections to the job was tantamount to religious persecution. Hellwege lawyered up and filed a lawsuit against the clinic for religious discrimination.
