Italian doctors refuse to perform abortion
According to a NYTimes briefing, nearly 70% of Italian doctors refuse to perform abortions.
Nearly 70 percent of Italian gynecologists now refuse to perform abortions on moral grounds, according to the Health Ministry. Italy legalized abortion in 1978 but pressure from the Vatican enabled doctors to claim a “conscientious objection” and refuse to carry out the procedure. Between 2003 and 2007 the number of gynecologists claiming the exemption rose to 69.2 percent, from 58.7 percent, the ministry said
Wow, can we really allow this kind of thing to happen? What if cops refused to apprehend criminals on Sunday? What if doctors start refusing treating black people? I mean, morals is such a loose term, that anything can be done, or not done, in the name of your “morals”. What kind of bullshit drug are these doctors on? The thing that amazes me is that these are scientifically trained people who can’t seem to reason through a simple problem. I wonder if next their neurosurgeons will refuse to perform life saving surgeries on uncircumcised men. “Well I cant’ touch an uncircumcised man, it’s against my religion morals!”
