Doctors of Death

Can't they just sign a waiver, like the Little Sisters of the Poor?
The enthusiastic embrace of legalized euthanasia by the Canadian medical establishment has been shocking and appalling. Now, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario–the official provincial medical association–has betrayed doctors who have a conscientious objection to committing euthanasia. To keep from suffering professional discipline, all Ontario doctors will have to be complicit in homicide. From the ethics opinion: Where a physician declines to provide medical assistance in dying for reasons of conscience or religion, the physician must not abandon the patient. An effective referral must be provided. An effective referral means a referral made in good faith, to a non-objecting, available, and accessible physician, nurse practitioner or agency. The referral must be made in a timely manner to allow the patient to access medical assistance in dying… The federal legislation does not compel physicians to provide or assist in providing medical assistance in dying. For clarity, the College does not consider providing the patient with an ‘effective referral’ as ‘assisting’ in providing medical assistance in dying. In other words, all doctors must become death doctor pimps.
