Please protect doctors' rights to conscientious objection and remove this new wording of "effective referral". According to psychiatry.org, 80% to 90% of depressed people eventually respond well to treatment with support from doctors, psychologists and others. Do you really think that you should allow MAID for mentally ill people who don't feel that there is hope and don't understand that it will take time and support to get better? Doctors should be giving hope and health care for their patients not a dead end MAID solution. I hope that there will be an investment in figuring out a different solution and not forcing doctors to refer against their conscience in protecting the vulnerable.
