Conscience Legislation Ignores Medical Providers Committed to Giving Patients All Necessary Care

Washington University in St. Louis

Advances in medicine allow doctors to keep patients alive longer, tackle fertility problems and extend the viability of premature babies. They also lead to a growing number of moral questions for both the medical provider and patient. “Across the country, so-called conscience legislation allows doctors and nurses to refuse to provide abortions, contraception, sterilizations, and end-of-life care,” says Elizabeth Sepper, JD, health law expert and professor of law at Washington University in St. Louis. “But legislators have totally overlooked the consciences of providers who have made the conscientious judgment to deliver care and of the patients who seek these treatments.” She says that laws should negotiate conflict between individual and institutional belief without losing sight of the patient. Sepper will discuss this issue during a 10/26 webcast.
