For Immediate Release:
INTERVENERS IN BC ASSISTED SUICIDE CASE RAISE CONCERNS ABOUT RULING, CONSCIENCE PROTECTION
Our doctors maintain professional, respectful and compassionate relationships with their patients. This includes accompanying patients as they make difficult choices, understanding fully that the final decision is always the patient’s.
Our doctors simply ask that they be respected as professionals in return.
The choice is yours. Will you tell the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) what you think about conscience rights?
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) and Saskatchewan (CPSS) have draft policies that would demand that doctors participate in morally controversial procedures like abortion and even euthanasia (if it becomes legal).
We need you to provide your comments, suggestions and feedback on the two draft policies found below.
The deadline for comments is: Feb 20, 2015
Complete the CPSO survey here: http://policyconsult.cpso.on.ca/?page_id=5165

The deadline for comments is: March 6, 2015
