CMDS Executive Director to participate in Physician Conscience Rights discussion

Larry Worthen has been asked to participate for the full hour of the CBC noon hour phone in show Ontario Today on February 25th from 12:00 to 1:00 PM (EST).  The topic of discussion will be on Physician Conscience Rights.

The idea for the show came from a recent conflict between a patient and a doctor in Ottawa who has chosen to exclude contraceptives from his practice. It has come to light that three physicians in Ottawa have taken this step. Ottawa Clinic Doctors' Refusal

CMDS supports the right of physicians to determine their response to patient needs based on their medical judgement, moral concerns and religious beliefs. 

This will be the substance of the hour long phone in show. An activist group that publicized this issue will be given a prerecorded interview, then the rest of the hour will be taken up with people phoning in.

Please pray for Larry as he takes on this endeavor to uphold the conscience rights of physicians and medical professionals. You may also wish to listen in to the program, or even call.

We urge you to call in to give your opinion. The toll free number to call in is: 1-888-817-8995.
