Under the present Canadian Medical Association's conscientious objector policy, doctors are not required to commit abortions, and do not have to refer women requesting abortions to someone who does.
According to LifeSiteNews.com as reported in The Interim (June 2007), this does not sit well with the US National Abortion Federation; it is demanding that Canadian doctors refer patients for abortions whether or not they object on moral grounds.
Apparently, there are a lot of doctors in Canada who just don't want to have anything to do with abortion.
That's something to be thankful for!
"Father, we thank you for each and every healthcare worker in Canada (and the US) who is pro-life and who refuses on grounds of conscience to participate in abortions. We thank you for each and every one of them, and ask that you pour out your blessing upon them and their families. Let them know that we appreciate their front-line efforts on behalf of righteousness. They are in the trenches where life-and-death matters are being decided. We know that, statistically, the vast majority of them will be Christians, as it seems that only Christians care enough about such matters to take courageous stands. Bless each one, Christian or not, and let them know we are standing with them.
Through Jesus Christ, the only wise and only good Saviour of the world, Amen.
