Tips on Writing Letters to the Editor

Talking Points on Conscience Protections

  1. Without conscience protections, healthcare access for hundreds of thousands of patients nationwide will be threatened and healthcare costs will rise as conscientious professionals and institutions leave medicine.
  2. The conscience clause is a necessary regulation to preserve the exclusive patient-physician relationship. Without it, the government will be able to effectively limit where patients can go for care.
  3. No physician should lose his or her job or be denied a promotion for following conscience and ethical standards such as the patient-protecting Hippocratic Oath.
  4. Americans support the conscience clause. A nationwide survey conducted by The Polling Company, Inc. and completed in April 2009 revealed that 63% support the conscience protection regulation.
