Why would a woman want to go to a Doctor for an abortion, if the Doctor does not
want to do it. How could she feel a trust in him? Trying to force a provider to
do something they do not believe in, for what ever reason, feels wrong.
@pharmacist So you see no ethical conflicts with a doctors refusal to
treat a patient? Should a doctor always be able to claim something goes against
their belief no matter the nature of situation or the people involved?
So George, you have NO problem FORCING someone to do something totally against
their beliefs? Ever hear of the 1st Amendment? If that's not establishment of
religion...Geez, there is even an outlet for conscientious objectors
so they don't have to go to war, and yet you'd FORCE someone to perform an
abortion? So much for freedom of choice! I guess it only exists if you agree
with the left.
@lost in DCCare to answer my question rather then attack me. Is there ever
a time a doctor should not be allowed to refuse to treat a patient? What if it
was a matter of the patients race or the patients religion being objectionable
to the doctors beliefs?
