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.

Care 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?
