I am a young father, and soon to be father of a second child. My wife during our first pregnancy had a very difficult time in our northern community because our town county only had three physicians on staff to serve a population of 10,000 people. We had to drive, almost 3 hours to a city in order to give birth to our first born. Making it mandatory to have doctors prescribe procedures that are against their principles will force doctors to head south. Our town already struggles to keep doctors in our town and I personally know of three doctors who have moved out of our town to Australia. Please don't make it harder to keep doctors in our town because of a new policy. The old policy where doctors can choose what to prescribe to certain patients has been working fine and does not need to change. Doctors care about their patience and care about the life they support more than any politicians will ever know.
