The Big Picture
Some direct documentation of the global effort at depopulation is covered towards the end of this post, which refers to the 2009 meeting of major billionaire philanthropists.
Examples: International Efforts to Suppress Conscience Rights
1. United States: Employers
This is a story from June 2014 about religious freedom and freedom of conscience. With the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration tried to force large companies to provide birth control coverage to their workers. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against this provision. Senator Ted Cruz (born in Calgary) said this decision affirmed the right of Americans to
live and work in accordance to their conscience . . .

2. United States: Nurses and Abortion
This was an incident in 2011:
‘Do abortions or get fired’ hospital told nurses: lawsuit

Judge Stops Hospital From Forcing Nurses to Help in Abortions

According to that article and this one, the federal law forbids this coercion against health-care workers, and so does a New Jersey law, which states:
No person shall be required to perform or assist in the performance of an abortion or sterilization.
Why are laws like this being challenged, and why is there pressure on health-care workers? It’s the same thing all over the world. We know the answer.
3. United States: Doctors and Abortion
Obama Administration Rejects Conscience Protections
news.heartland.org, William L. Saunders | 2 October 2013
The same thing going on in Ontario over the last few years has been going on in the States. According to this article, a decision by the Obama administration
weakens conscience protections instituted under President Bush.
The Obama administration started the process of cancelling Bush’s regulations in 2009. The author emphasizes that there is real pressure at this time on those in the medical profession who object to certain reproductive procedures. The example he gives is the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, which, in 2010,
reaffirmed its 2007 Ethics Committee Number 385, titled “The Limits of Conscientious Refusal in Reproductive Medicine”.
