- Ontario Court fails to protect doctors’ conscience rights.
On January 31st, a coalition of groups representing 4700 doctors lost a court challenge against the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The coalition of doctors oppose the effective referral mandate of the College, claiming that it violates their freedom of conscience and religion as protected in Section 2 of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
- The Ontario Divisional Court, in its ruling stated that the referral rule was a reasonable limit on doctors’ freedom of religion because it protected “access” that would otherwise be “compromised or sacrificed.” More.
- Toronto Right to Life’s application against being forced to support abortion if they participate in the Summer Jobs program has been dismissed.
