Doctors in Ontario may be forced to go against beliefs

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) has a new draft which if implemented will be the first province in Canada to change its regulations on medical conscience.

The document outlines that doctors should place the needs of a patient first, and "there are times when it may be necessary for physicians to set aside their personal beliefs in order to ensure that patients or potential patients are provided with the medical services they require."

Ontario doctors currently are allowed to opt out of performing abortions or prescribing birth control pills if it goes against their religious or moral beliefs.

But if the new rules being proposed are approved next month, this, along with ending a doctor-patient relationship based on religious or moral conscience, might be considered professional misconduct.

I am of the opinion that this is laying the ground work for the introduction of laws relating to euthanasia in this province and then across the nation.

Also suspect is the timing of the introduction of this draft during summer when most doctors are on vacation.

Please pray that this draft does not pass especially for the few practicing Catholic doctors left in the province.
