Doctors, like anybody else, should be free to act according to their conscience. This is, after all, a free country, is it not? A country where we have freedom of conscience according to the Constitution? Since when do governments have the right to tell people what to believe, or that their belief is wrong/doesn't matter and they must act in opposition to it? Why should doctors be forced to perform procedures which conflict with their beliefs or their conscience? We cannot let this happen! Governments need to be told in no uncertain terms to butt out, even if the health profession is publicly funded. If anybody wants an abortion or MAID, there's plenty of doctors who are willing; so let people looking for death simply go to another doctor, the same way if I don't like my mechanic I find a different one.
