Stand up to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) for physicians’ Charter Right of Freedom of Conscience and ReligionAction links and background information
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) in a proposed new draft document states:
“However, in such situations, they must make a timely referral to another health care provider who is willing and able to accept the patient and provide the service.”
Catholic physicians believe that a mandate for a “timely referral” is a violation of a physician’s rights, as it compels the physician to violate his or her own conscience by being a participant in the very act, the very procedure to which he or she objects in the first place.
The CPSS is accepting submissions from all Saskatchewan citizens until March 6, 2015. We are all called to inform the CPSS in writing that we reject the proposed “timely referral” mandate for doctors whose Charter right of freedom of conscience and religion must be respected.

The submission deadline is Friday, March 6, 2015.
