I do not think that forcing anyone to go against their conscience is right or democratic, wise or excusable. If doctors feel that a medical procedure will harm their patient in any way why should they be forced to refer that person to another who will end up harming them in the way the doctor hoped to avoid? It would be wrong to draw someone into doing anything that they feel is wrong, evil or harmful to their patient in any way. As well, this is a slippery slope and could lead to doctors being forced to do these very same precedures themselves.
