Doctors and health care practicioners should be given the freedom of conscience and the option to decline practices they find morally disturbing or distressful. Doctors and other health providers should not be expected to provide referrals for parctices that oppose their conscience. Doctors and health care practicioners should be encouraged to promote health and life. I am very concerned by the direction that we see society is going. I am a minister of the Gospel and I need to be able to support the spiritual needs of the people of faith, who hold dear the values and beliefs of the Bible. The spiritual side is a part of who people are, and they must have freedom to live by their consciences.
