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.

Why Peter, I can see you don't know your NO very well!

You certainly can attend protestant worship.

From the NO's Canon Law:
Can.  844 §2. Whenever necessity requires it or true spiritual advantage suggests it, and provided that danger of error or of indifferentism is avoided, the Christian faithful for whom it is physically or morally impossible to approach a Catholic minister are permitted to receive the sacraments of penance, Eucharist, and anointing of the sick from non-Catholic ministers in whose Churches these sacraments are valid.
",..in whose Churches these sacraments are valid?"
What sacraments are valid in protestant communities?
