Concerns Regarding SB 276 and Doctor-Patient Relationship

To: Sen. Foil, Gov. Landry, Rep. Davis

From: A verified voter in Baton Rouge, LA

May 2

I am writing to urge you to consider the unintended consequences that SB 276 may have on the medical professionals who serve our community. One of the primary issues is its interference with the autonomy of healthcare providers.  By imposing stringent restrictions and penalties on medical decisions, this bill could undermine the ability of doctors to make critical decisions based on their patients' urgent and unique needs.  This intrusion into the doctor-patient relationship not only erodes trust but also jeopardizes the quality of healthcare delivery. Further, the complex and contradictory provisions of SB 276 will create a climate of uncertainty and confusion among healthcare professionals. This chilling effect on medical decision-making could have far-reaching implications for the health and well-being of our community. For example, the fear of potential penalties and oversight could discourage doctors from providing the necessary care and medical exemptions their patients require.  In light of these grave concerns, I urge you to reconsider your support for SB 276 and explore alternative approaches that uphold the principles of patient-centered care and the autonomy of healthcare providers.  The doctor-patient relationship is the foundation of our healthcare system. Any legislation that undermines this essential trust must be carefully scrutinized.
