Julie Cantor, a litigation associate in the Los Angeles office of Munger, Tolles & Olson, examines a new rule, enacted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, that more broadly defines when health care providers can turn away patients based on religious or moral grounds. The piece, entitled “Conscientious Objection Gone Awry - Restoring Selfless Professionalism in Medicine,” appears in the April 9, 2009 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Cantor completed her M.D. at the Yale University School of Medicine and is currently an adjunct professor at the UCLA School of Law.
