Pro-life photographer says Catholic hospital gave her the boot

Jennie Drude works as a newborn photographer at Houston-area hospitals, including St. Luke’s Catholic Hospital, where she met a pregnant woman whose unborn baby suffered from anencephaly. That rare disease is fatal for the baby and Drude drew from her own experience with losing a child at birth. 

“She informed me of how her doctor told her she was going to have her baby, which was using the KCl procedure, which is potassium chloride where they inject it in the baby's heart, and they kill the baby,” Drude recalls. “And then she would be sent back to the hospital to be induced.”

Drude gave the distraught woman a pamphlet on the Patient's Bill of Rights, and explained the state's legal rights to the woman.

“So because I informed this patient of her legal rights in the state of Texas,” Drudge claims, “the hospital said I was unprofessional and I am no longer allowed to work there and earn money.”

The booted photographer says she has repeatedly called St. Luke’s executives asking for an explanation but so far no one has talked to her.

“I found out later,” she tells OneNewsNow, “that they've been threatening nurses that still work there and telling them they're not allowed to contact me.”

A question from pro-life advocates is why the Catholic hospital would allow a doctor to oversee an abortion.
