On conscience rights legislation

November 13, 2019

Dr. Christine P. Molnar, AMA President

Dear Members:

On November 7, a United Conservative Party MLA tabled a private members bill: Bill 207, Conscience Rights (Health Care Providers) Protection Act.

I wanted you to know that I have written to Minister of Health Tyler Shandro, to express the opinion that this legislation is unnecessary and inappropriate. You can review my letter here.

I have been hearing from many of you regarding issues in my recent President’s Letters. Please keep the input coming. You can reach me in the following ways:

  • Communicate with me privately and directly by email if you would like a reply: president@albertadoctors.org
  • Comment publicly below on this President’s Letter (please be aware that comments are public, i.e., not members-only, even if you are logged in as a member).

In your service,

Christine P. Molnar, MD, FRCPC
President, Alberta Medical Association
