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.
Blagojevich's Last Day of Freedom | NBC Chicago.
Blagojevich is remembered for his governor’s edict to force Illinois pharmacists to dispense ALL birth control drugs without delay, regardless of clinical (e.g. thromboembolic considerations) or conscientious (e.g. abortifacient properties) objections. Perhaps Obama and Sebelius, who are imposing more extreme mandates on insurance companies, and the health care industry, will eventually obtain a similar opportunity for meditation and reflection as has been afforded to Rod Blagojevich.
New bill could prevent pharmacists from denying contraception prescriptions to customers – NorthJersey.com
Two legislators, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y are pushing a bill to deny pharmacists the right of conscience with respect to dispensing hormonal birth control.
Scroll one article down to see what Pharmer had to say about Sebelius pretending that the rights of conscientious objectors would be respected in the Obama birth control plan.
Blagojevich Rule Challenged | Daily News | NCRegister.com.
In Sangamon County, Circuit Court Judge John Belz ruled that Illinois pharmacists can’t be forced to dispense the morning after pills against their own ethical standards and religious beliefs.
Opponents promise to immediately challenge this ruling, but Atty. Francis J. Manion, ACLJ senior counsel, who represented the conscientiously objecting pharmacists notes that the court ruling addresses specific arguments for which the Illinois state attorneys were not able to provide evidence. For example, they were not able to argue that a single woman had been prevented from obtaining her morning after pills by a pharmacist who would not personally provide them. For that reason, an appeal on their part will likely be a waste of Illinois’ negative financial resources.
The Illinois edict, which was overturned in the circuit court, had basically been designed by Planned Parenthood, and this is the case for many other unconstitutional state laws opposing the human rights of health care professionals.
The article linked addresses the battle over conscience rights in numerous other states, including Wisconsin, Washington, where the pharmacists are in trouble, and in several more states which have recently supported pharmacists of conscience.
Scroll down in this blog to see the prescriber information for Plan B, which clearly contradicts the false premise of the Wisconsin regulations, forcing pharmacists to dispense Plan B (as well as all other hormonal birth control). Expect a new legal battle to erupt in that state as the pharmacy owners are forced to apply the legislation and fire conscientiously objecting pharmacists. Wisconsin’s legislation targeting the pharmacists was hidden in budget bills by the democrat legislature, and passed without much notice. The newer state government might find cost containment benefits in rescinding the legislation.
The legal battle is ongoing in the state of Washington, which the pro-abortion Governor Gregoire and her Board of Pharmacy might drive all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. It might be the crowning achievement of their careers.
Illinois Pharmacy Owners have emerged victorious after six years of litigation against the state of Illinois edict compelling them to dispense the morning after pill.
This comes shortly after the approval of a new morning after pill, Ella, which is an analog of RU486, mifepristone.
Francis J Manion of the ACLJ, and Mark Rienzi, of Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law teamed up as counsel to the pharmacy owners.
Deposed Governor Blagojevich’s original order addressing individual pharmacists had previously been overturned.
Judge Belz noted that the government had made no effort to advance it’s supposed interest in supplying morning after pills to women prior to April 2010, and had specifically targeted pharmacists of conscience and their religious beliefs.
Pharmacists for Life International has stored the original letter from Blagojevich which threatened pharmacists with loss of their license to practice if they did not dispense the morning after pill and all other hormonal birth control products and contraceptives upon demand.
The coverage in the Chicago Tribune is very brief, does not mention the newest morning after pill, and does not mention that the original order to the pharmacists was for them to dispense all drugs labeled as “contraceptives” though most are misbranded. It does mention an expected (hoped for) appeal to the case.
Planned Parenthood: ‘Personhood’ Amendment a product of ‘radical anti-choice extremists’ | Florida Independent: News. Politics. Media.
“Stephanie Kunkel, executive director of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, says her organization is taking the initiative “seriously,” pointing out that the amendment could lead to bans on birth control.”
Yes, the girls at planned unparenthood acknowledge, after years of denial, the correctness of pharmacists who avoided dispensing various hormonal forms of birth control, in order to avoid involvment in killing humans- very early in development.
Recognizing that humanity is intrinsic, from the very start of development, would cause BIRTH CONTROL PILLS to be outlawed, they fret.
“If passed, the result would not only ban abortion, but would go so far as to ban most common forms of birth control. … .”
Thank you for acknowledging that hormonal birth control can operate by interceptive/abortive mechanisms, GRRRLS.
Missouri Pro-Life Bill Protects Pharmacists Conscience Rights | LifeNews.com.
Missouri State Rep. David Sater has introduced a conscience protection bill for pharmacists, who opt not to sell abortive drugs.
It is of course, opposed by Planned Parenthood, whose assessment of which drugs are abortive changes depending on the audience.
This bill is to address problems pharmacists have faced in the past for refusing to dispense drugs which end human life at its earliest stages.
Heather Williams, an adherent Baptist was fired in 2006 by Target in Missouri for refusing to dispense the morning after pill, a drug which can stop the implantation of an early human embryo, thereby killing it.
We’ve seen the opposition to the Tebow Superbowl ad, by the pro-aborts who have supported Obama throughout his career. We know that the health and self determination of women is not uppermost in the mind of this administration. We’ve known for decades that “Choice” would become coercion, and that time is upon us now.
On the heels of the aborted attempt to punish military women who become pregnant, is this latest assault on the health of women as well as the conscience rights of health care providers.
Military hospitals will be forced to stock and dispense the Morning After Pill.
First, let it be understood that the Morning After Pills possess an interceptive mechanism to stop the early embryo from implanting. Those who claim otherwise are demonstrating that they don’t understand reproductive processes, and cannot be relied upon to provide competent gynecological care. (Note that while the Plan B One-Step site admits to the embryocidal mechanisms, there is a postulation that pregnancy starts after implantation, and this is for the purpose of deception.)
Next, all of those who would object to embryonic stem cell research should, for the exact same reason, find the morning after pills to be an unacceptable form of contraception.
Third, let it be understood that the efficacy of the morning after pills is quite poor in actual use, and is most closely comparable to the withdrawal method over time. The manufacturers have ceased comparing the efficacy of either plan B product to other contraceptive methods in the provider information leaflets . Its ready availability and use is NOT associated with a reduction in the demand for surgical abortions.
Let anyone whose consciences will be trampled by the latest edict of the Obama administration seek legal assistance quickly. Health care professionals who are adversely affected by this decision can email Pharmer . The primary site for obtaining information and assistance has ALWAYS been Pharmacists for Life International.
The future health and autonomy of women depends upon the continued ability of conscientious health care professionals to continue in their practices. Without our presence, women will lose their option to Choose Life.
