I strongly disagree with forcing doctors, nurses, other health care workers to refer for any procedure that is against their conscience. Eliminate "effective referral" from the new Standard of Practice. Health care workers pledge to "do no harm" & that should include "do not refer to harm". Patients want doctors & nurses who will "fight" for their life not give up on them & promote euthanasia or abortion. We already have a shortage of doctors & nurses. Forcing them to go against their conscience will encourage them to practice somewhere else or leave the profession. This is not acceptable!
