Doctors should not be required to have any involvement in the killing of their patients. Good doctors will avoid practicing here because they are not fully protected in their views on the value of human life. (I know of one brilliant surgeon who would love to practice here eventually, but suspects that it may never be possible because she will not refer a patient to someone who would assist rather than prevent death.) As a patient with pain issues, I also want to know that my doctor's only interest is in keeping me as comfortable as possible, rather than pushing other options on me and my family members to speed up my death and save the system time and money. Therefore, I need the assurance that truly pro-life doctors will still be able to practice in Alberta. When doctors had to swear to the hippocratic oath, that was a given.
