The "Freedom To Choose" Goes Two Ways

This article was written by Mark Pickup and published on his blog on March 19, 2017.

Sharon Kirkey, 'Take my name off the list, I can't do any more' some doctors backing out of assisted death, National Post, 26 February 2017.

Nine months after Canada legalised medically assisted suicide (euphemistically and deceptively termed medical aid in dying). It seems many participating Canadian doctors are not comfortable murdering killing their patients. (See article above.) Assisted suicide proponents speculate it's because doctors' fear of prosecution or distaste for filling out associated paperwork. Yeah right. 

Could it be that deep within the human psyche there is a natural repugnance to killing people? Enforced 'progressive' groupthink still can't stifle every human conscience. 

Support doctors who have lost their stomach for killing human beings—whether it be abortion or assisted suicide. Encourage them to return to Hippocratic medicine. Support conscience rights that are supposedly protected in Article 2, FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS of the CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS:

"Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms (a) freedom of conscience and religion; (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression..."
What is the point of having freedom of thought, belief or opinion without the ability to express it in word and behaviour? The freedom choice to be put to death is not the only right in Canada's Brave New World of tax-funded assisted suicide.
There must also be an equal right for medical professionals not to participate. Choice goes two ways.

I agree with this; however the social engineers who cry reptile tears at the first and every opportunity would disagree. Personally, I'd like to see a harder line on freedom of expression at all levels of our society. If someone doesn't like what I say, I still have a right to say it. If I don't like what they say, that doesn't make me a bigot or a 'phobe.
