Living Wills Could Be Nulled by “Conscience Law”

Posted on February 9th, 2011 No Comments

Efforts have been made to make changes to Idaho’s “Conscience Law,” which states that medical practitioners have the right to refuse to provide a service to a patient if it does not seem right to them, or violates the health care provider’s conscience. With the passing of this law, the living wills of patients will be disregarded.

Tom Loertscher, the Chairman of the House State Affairs Committee, has the opportunity to kill the bill, however, he is undecided on what he would like to do.

The bill directly defies an Idaho law which states that the wishes of people with living wills must be honored.
