Sound the Alarm! People Being Guided by Their Conscience!

The NOW chapter in Raleigh is advising us
[...] that hospitals, clinics, insurance companies and others can deny reproductive health care services to women if it violates their "conscience" or is "morally objectionable." ?

The Raleigh NC NOW Chapter Website sounds the alarm!

However, they have also posted elsewhere on their website
We stand for healthy women and families. We stand for access to basic health care, including birth control, emergency contraception, sex education, STD testing and treatment, prenatal care, and abortion.

We stand for medical privacy.

We stand for women's lives. We stand on moral ground.

We stand on moral ground?

Am I to understand that the position of NOW is that one should not act according to their conscience, or do things that are 'morally objectionable'? Or should stand on moral ground? Which is it?

In my opinion organization that considers itself the moral authority, while at the same time advocating that others do not act upon their consciense or be guided by their own morals has declared itself dangerous.
