Medical College of Peru embraces abortion

.- Officials at the Medical College of Peru (MCP) decided this week to publish an “official document,” harshly contested by its members, forcing the college to adhere to the international agenda of pro-abortion organizations.

The document is based on the conclusions of the controversial “National Workshop on Sexual and Reproductive Rights,” which took place in March of this year behind closed doors and was convened by the president of the National Council of the Medical College of Peru, Dr. Amador Vargas Guerra.

The workshop focused on controversial and even illegal issues, such as the “right” to emergency contraception, “therapeutic abortion,” and “sexual and reproductive rights for young people.”  The event received financial backing from Planned Parenthood of America and the International Federation of Planned Parenthood, which worked to get abortion legalized in Colombia.

A number of prominent Peruvian doctors have expressed concern that they were never consulted that the document would be the new “public position” of the MCP, and local councils of the College said they did not endorse the document.  A group of doctors has announced they will be recommending measures to oppose the directive, especially since it recommends certain types of abortion that are prohibited by Peruvian law.
