Assisted suicide is legal? I didn't know that was a thing. I guess my insurance doesn't cover it.

So wait, if a health care provider doesn’t want to provide a service because they think it’s wrong (like abortion, or a sex change) they have a right too? What’s the problem with this? Because it sounds like common sense to me. Granted I’m assuming they would have the end goal of helping the patient have a long and healthy life, so religion wouldn’t stop any procedures aimed towards fulfilling that.
