In all matters, the conscience rights of professionals - particularly when it comes to healthcare providers - physicians, surgeons, councillors, therapists etc - need to be affirmed and in no way diminished through the manipulated language of “effective referrals”. This includes but not limited to: euthanasia, abortion or gender reassignment surgery. It is apparent that there are any number of individuals willing to do what others won’t so there is no need to compel professionals to do what is unconscionable such as killing people and mutilating otherwise healthy children or effectively referring patients to the butchers themselves. Canadian society has sunk so low that we are now ranked as having some of the most permissive laws related to putting people to death. In time I hope professional institutions will again choose life giving policies over the death cult.
