The article focuses on the resolution of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) on gender discrimination against doctors and trainees in Canada. According to the resolution, patient's pressure to apply medical practices dictated by their religion on culture should be prohibited. Jean-Bernard Trudeau, president of the Quebec Medical Association, states that patient demands to apply medical practices based on their religion on culture is against the fundamental values of the society and should not be accepted. The CMA has also approved other motions, including its refusal to adopt Bill C-484 and any legislation that compromises access for women to medical services that are required to terminate pregnancy.
