While forcing our physicians to act against their consciences may sound as though it's in the best interest of their patients, I am afraid it will make our struggling health care system even more over burdened. The moral distress this sort of legislation puts on our objecting physicians has proven to be enough to push many of them into leaving their workplace or practice entirely. I also would not be as confident in my physician should I know that he could not operate according to his conscience. I want diversity in both thought and values to be something we maintain and promote in our medical profession.
