Ontario authorities take action on doctors who deny birth control - The Globe and Mail

When abortions were made legal, everyone was assured that doctors would not be forced to perform them if they had moral objections to the procedure. Now that promise is gone and all physicians in Ontario must agree to perform one if requested.



Now we have euthanasia becoming legal in the country (once again starting with Quebec) with a similar 'protection' offered to both doctors and patients. Any bets on how long it will take before this protection of one's morals disappears as it now has done with abortion? I doubt it will take very long at all. Certainly not the 20+ years that it took in the earlier issue. I won't be surprised to see it come to pass within the next decade.

  1. According to the article they are required to refer patients to another doctor is they disagree with the action. That seems reasonable. Only in an emergency situation would they be required to go against their beliefs. So a Jehovah Witness doctor would not have to prescribe a blood transfusion but would be required to if they were the only doctor on call in an emergency room and a patient needs blood.

  2. Here's another doctor excluding patients who don't vaccinate their children.
