Morality at the Bedside:
How Stronger Enforcement of Physician Opt-Outs Could Impact Patient Care
Monday, March 26, 2018
Panel from 3:30-4:30 pm, Reception to follow
UC Hastings, College of the Law
Alumni Reception Center (ARC) at 200 McAllister St.
On January 26, 2018, the Trump Administration promulgated a proposed rule to codify, clarify and implement several federal statutes that aim to protect the rights of health care providers to refuse health services based on religious or moral beliefs. These proposed rules, along with previously enacted statutes, arguably pit the religious beliefs of health care providers against the health care interests of patients.
Although focused on abortion, sterilization, and end of life care, the rules would cover a variety of health care services funded by the federal government as well as anyone involved in the provision of those services. Health care providers could deny care based on any number of religious and moral objections, including objections based on a patient's gender, sexual orientation or racial identity.
Help us welcome panelists Martha Swartz, Kathryn Tucker, Radhika Rao and Dorit Reiss for a discussion of these proposed rules!
