Disturbing subject abortion.... as euthanasia etc .....but generally speaking medics raison d etre is to save life not destroy it......
I'm glad paramount you said 'generally' medics raison d'etre is to save life. My mother had a small stroke, she was 88 it affected her speech and swallowing, the said they would arrange for her to have peg fitted then changed their mind. Only when we had a meeting with palliative nurse who said it was a gentle way to die! Yeah that's the way to go gently in the dark night,stomach acid eating into your stomach.brother threatened to sell house,the hospital agreed to perform. My mum lived near three and half years more. Watching telly and running down her sisters, still three sisters acting like 5, 6, 8!
Or when husband was ill saw Nfr..DNR ..on notes. He died several years later! As on the subject of abortion , if a doctor or nurse really had strong feeling about being involved I would understand why not, but they should be moved from gynae ward. Perhaps to A and E where women are admitted bleeding to death from illegal abortions or sepsis!
