Call to Action: Tell the AMA to denounce Arizonas "wrongful birth" bill

152 Signatures Goal: 250

The Arizona Senate passed a bill this week that gives doctors a free pass to not inform pregnant women of prenatal problems because such information "could" lead to abortion.  We, the undersigned, respectfully ask the American Medical Association to publicly denounce this, and any future legislation, that promotes and/or suggests legal allowances for physicians to withhold pertinent medical information as a means to control, guide, or dissuade a patient from choosing a legally available course of treatment. We request this on the basis that this legislation is in direct disharmony with the following sections of the AMA Code of Ethics. Opinion 10.015 - The Patient-Physician RelationshipOpinion 10.01 - Fundamental Elements of the Patient-Physician Relationship http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/physician-resources/medical-ethics/code-medical-ethics.page?
