These proposed changes to section 1e. and 1f. are incredibly concerning as they could and will prevent doctors from continuing to practice in Alberta. Doctors need to be able to contentiously object to practices that violate their principles and convictions. They can't and shouldn't ever be forced to "effectively refer" someone for a treatment that they believe is harmful. Moreover, many people desire physicians that can correspond to their beliefs and convictions. There are more than enough doctors who are already eliminating their patients through MAID. We don't need to force every single one of them to refer patients or do it themselves.
