Medical Reform Group of Ontario

February 24, 1986

The Medical Reform Group of Ontario is shocked that physicians in Sarnia have chosen to protest the Health Care Accessibility Act by disbanding their only Therapeutic Abortion Committee. The public is called on to look long and hard at the motivation of those in our caring profession who act to punish their women patients in this way. We condemn the arbitrary use of any patient group as a weapon in the battle that now rages between the Ontario Medical Association and the provincial government.

Dr. Mimi Divinsky
Dr. Michael Rachlis
