If you provide me with official Church documentation that people 'who cannot in good conscience" [however thats judged since one can't fool God] are not obliged to go to the NO Mass, if that is their only option for fulfilling the obligation, then I will humbly take back everything I quoted on the Churches precept and I will publically apologize.
But remember you cannot fool God.

The faithful are never obliged to attend a worship service which is sinful. Let's take this a step further, are the faithful obliged to go to a Protestant worship service if no NO Masses, TLM's, or Divine Liturgies are available?

The faithful are never obliged to go to a "Mass" where the sacraments validity are questionable. Since with the NO, you never know what you are going to get, you can rightly make the argument that the validity of the Masses are in serious doubt. Therefore, the faithful do not have to attend a NO Mass.
Firstly, most NO Masses that I have been to are not sinful.
Secondly its ludicrous to compare a Prot service to a Catholic Mass, which the NO Missae certainly is.
If someone lives in an area where they cannot possibly get to any Catholic Mass, NO, TLM or Catholic Divine Liturgy, than the obligation does not apply. God does not expect the impossible.
Thirdly, I have been to 2 invalid NO Mass in over 35 years of going to it.
I have been to one invalid TLM, in 6 years of going to it. So I believe it is very rare to have invalid NO Masses.
If the correct form and matter is used at the NO it is a valid Mass and it fulfills the obligation and this is the majority of the time.
