Pro-life student midwife wins apology over placement ban

from The Christian Institute:

A midwifery student who was banned from her hospital placement over her pro-life views has won an apology and settlement from her university.

Julia Rynkiewicz was suspended from her placement after a lecturer at the University of Nottingham reported her involvement with the university’s Students for Life society.

She was subject to a four-month fitness-to-practise investigation which forced her to delay her studies and left her without access to student finance, despite the allegations being eventually dismissed.

Rynkiewicz filed a formal complaint with the university in January and said she was “willing to take this as far as necessary”. The university has now apologised and agreed a settlement.

The student midwife said: “Putting my life on hold because of an unjust investigation was really difficult, both mentally and emotionally.
