Medical Rights of Conscience
No medical professional should be forced to violate their oath to “do no harm.”
Every American should have the freedom to operate according to their ethical and religious beliefs, especially doctors, nurses, and other medical providers. The Constitution protects their freedom too.

Medical professionals gladly serve all people but may have a conscience objection against a particular procedure, like prescribing abortion-inducing drugs or performing a medically unnecessary mastectomy on a teenage girl as part of a so-called gender transition procedure.
The freedom to live and work consistent with one’s conscience is at the heart of what motivates many who enter the medical field, a profession full of individuals who dedicate their lives to healing and doing no harm.
No one should be forced to choose between their faith and their profession.
The freedom to practice medicine consistent with one’s beliefs is critical. When freedom of conscience is compromised, patient care is compromised.
