Wesley J. Smith: To resist utilitarianism in health care, conscience rights must be protected

There is a reason that moral diversity is under attack in health care. When doctors refuse to abort a fetus, participate in assisted suicide, excise healthy organs, or otherwise follow their consciences about morally contentious matters, they send a powerful message: Just because a medical act is legal doesn’t make it right.

Such a clarion witness is intolerable to those who want to weaponize medicine to impose secular individualistic and utilitarian values on all of society.

~ Wesley J. Smith, commenting on the push to get pro-lifers out of the medical field, First Things, May 12, 2017
