No private right of action. The Second Circuit had held that a federal statute that bars discrimination against health care workers who refuse to participate in abortion procedures does not create a private cause of action. In Cenzon-DeCarlo v. Mount Sinai Hospital, an operating room nurse claimed that she was forced to participate in a late-term abortion and sued the hospital. The Court held that there was no evidence of congressional intent to create a private right of action.

The decision in the case can be found here.
