VT Healthcare Workers Fight State to Protect Conscience Rights in Assisted Suicide


(LifeSiteNews) — Vermont healthcare professionals are suing to be able to abide by the medical profession's ancient creed, "I will do no harm." The state of Vermont is attempting to force healthcare workers to advise patients on doctor-assisted suicide.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Vermont, accuses the Vermont Board of Medical Practice and the Office of Professional Regulation of misapplying the state's assisted suicide law, called "Act 39," to require healthcare workers to counsel patients on suicide as an option of "palliative care."
