Physicians and all other medical practitioners are supposed to do whatever is viable and reasonable to protect the health and welfare of their patients. In my opinion it should be enshrined in law and professional standards that no one in the medical profession can be required to perform any procedure/treatment on a patient that is contrary to the medical practitioner's personal or professional ethics. Nor should any medical practitioner be required by law or professional standard to refer a patient to another medical practitioner to perform any procedure/treatment on a patient that is contrary to the would be referring medical practitioner's personal or professional ethics. Procedures that I believe my above stated position specifically applies to are as follows: 1) euthanasia or as it is euphemistically called M.A.i.D. 2) counselling minors to have sex change procedures 3) performing sex change procedures on a minor including hormone treatment and sex change surgery 4) abortion including prescribing or providing "morning after" pills. Also none of the above or related procedures should be performed on any patient who is mentally or emotionally incapable of fully understanding the consequences of the requested procedure(s).
