Colombian doctor suspended for not performing abortion on minor

.- Colombia’s Attorney General, Alejandro Ordonez Maldonado, recently called on the country’s Constitutional Court to protect the fundamental rights of Dr. German Arango Rojas, who was suspended for refusing to perform an abortion on a minor with a disability despite the demands of her parents.

Maldonado warned that the doctor’s fundamental rights to fair justice, equality and due process were violated.  After Rojas refused to perform the abortion, the National Medical Ethics Tribunal suspended him and ordered him to pay damages to the girl's family.

Colombia’s Public Ministry announced it has taken measures to protect the fundamental rights of the girl and her child who has since been adopted.
