is a physician and a long-time blogger who alerted readers today about states that are considering enacting so-called “Right of refusal” laws for physicians. Or, as he so aptly put it, “right to bigotry and discrimination” laws. The idea being bandied about is that physicians and allied health care professionals will be legally permitted to determine which parts of medicine/nursing/pharmacy they wish, independent of considerations such as, say, professional responsibility. Personally, I would strip any pharmacist or physician who refused to perform any approved procedure of their ability to continue to practice. Immediately.
