On the occasion of publication of a new book on physician conscience clauses written by Holly Fernandez Lynch, this panel examined the legal and ethical aspects of the current debates surrounding physicians and health care practitioner’s rights to refuse to perform legally permissible medical procedures on the grounds of moral objections. The author of Conflicts of Conscience in Health Care: An Institutional Compromise, Ms. Lynch was joined by I. Glenn Cohen, of Harvard Law School and the Petrie-Flom Center, and Prof. Dan Brock of Harvard University’s Program on Ethics and Health.
