Dr.'s should be able to choose in accordance with their ethical values what procedures they will participate in for a patient. If a procedure goes against their values they should be able to refuse the procedure and the patient can seek another Dr. who will either do what they want or they can change their thinking of why they think they want it in the first place. There are becoming far too many medical procedures now that have too many grey lines of ethical value and principle. Dr's should not have to give up their ethical values, or compromise their principles in order to continue a career they chose, in many cases a personal choice so they can give care and help to people in medical need.
