Don't force doctors to lie
Dear [Decision Makers],
Stop. Before you vote on/sign SB 313, stop and think about how this outrageous bill will affect women.This bill forces doctors to lie to their patients. There is no scientific evidence that choosing to end a pregnancy increases a woman's risk of breast cancer -- but doctors will be required to tell women seeking abortion that such a link exists. It is utterly disgraceful for a group of politicians to replace medical science with their own ideology. All to try to change a woman's mind. Lies have no place in the doctor's office.This dangerous bill provides legal protection for a doctor who withholds information about possible health risks from a pregnant patient if they think the truth might lead her to end her pregnancy. How dare you strip women of the fundamental right to make informed decisions about their own health and the health of their families?The relationship between a woman and her doctor is built on privacy, honesty, and trust. This bill is an unconscionable betrayal of the doctor-patient relationship that will cause irreversible harm to women's health.You need to stop. Stop inserting yourself into doctor's offices. Stop forcing doctors and patients to abide by your narrow-minded ideology. There's still time to protect women from the consequences of this despicable legislation. I urge you to stop it before it's too late.
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
