Clinical Medicine’s Statement of Ethics Protesting the Reproductive Health Act

Statement of Ethics

We, the medical clinicians licensed in New York and elsewhere believe that the Reproductive Health Act tramples the rights of medical clinicians to manage the treatment of their patients according to their training and conscience.

Additionally we believe that:

  • The good purpose of medicine is the good health of a single patient.
  • Only the medical community is capable of determining how medical services ought to be delivered to a patient.
  • Government should resist the temptation to use medicine as an expedient for the political abortion debate.
  • Parental involvement in the care of their children for all matters including reproductive health is essential to their well-being.
  • Patients should be free to select medical professionals who share their values.
  • The Abortion Expansion Act hinders patient autonomy by coercing clinicians to refer patients for abortion against their conscience.
