HHS Could Force Doctors to Do Procedures Against their Will


The idea of being forced to do something that you are morally opposed to is one that causes great distress. Especially if the immoral act you are compelled to do is work-related.

The thought of having to perform operations on people that you think are unwise, immoral, and unhealthy is a dangerous thing. We have to hope that, while we await the day that our children will rid this country of such practices, our politicians will protect doctors.

If not, the result could be the loss of our doctors.
