Doctors for Life would like to fully endorse Dr. Trevor Hayes’ statement on the right to conscientious objection, made at the recent Rally for Life in Dublin. The present abortion law fails to respect the human right to conscientious objection which protects health care professionals who do not wish to participate in abortion or in any other procedure which deliberately ends patients’ lives. Dr. Hayes has courageously articulated the case for the defence of conscientious objection and Doctors for Life, together with the allied pro-life health professional groups, will be taking a very firm stand on this issue in the next general election.
