From the Quebec “Dying with Dignity” Euthanasia Commission comes the following recommendation for providing physician assisted death.
By definition, medical aid in dying could only be provided by a physician. Under their codes of ethics, physicians and nurses are entitled to conscientious objection, meaning they can refuse to perform an act that goes against their values. Of course, physicians and nurses will retain this right where medical aid in dying is concerned. However, a doctor who refuses to provide medical aid in dying for reasons of conscience will have the duty to help his patient find another who is prepared to do so, as quickly as possible
Personal ethics notwithstanding, every physician will have to refer for killing, as a requisite function of medical practice in Quebec, if the above recommendation goes through. Canada has little to no conscience protection for health care professionals who think that killing is wrong.
There is 100% chance that the same will be expected of all U.S. physicians once Obamacare matures into its utopian form.
Most states already require pharmacists to refer patients to receive abortive drugs, if they choose not to dispense them. Physicians are expected to make the option of abortion known to a woman if her baby has an unfavorable prenatal diagnosis. They fear legal liability if they do not.
These are the reasons that those who think that killing humans is wrong will need to avoid working in many of the health care professions in the near future.
