Catholic association calls for registration of doctors who perform abortions


The president of the International Federation of Catholic Medical Associations, Dr. Jose Maria Simon, said last week that instead of creating a registry of doctors who refuse to perform abortions, the Collegial Medical Organization should create one for those who do.

In his judgment, it would be easier to register those who practice abortions, since “they are much fewer in number.” In addition, he believes that this would make it easier to keep the practice under control since it is still a crime, “although it has been legalized in certain cases.”

Dr. Simon added that the registry would diminish the likelihood of reprisals against doctors who are “respectful of human life” and would prevent restrictions on the right to conscientious objection, “which comes directly from natural law, from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and from the Spanish constitution itself.”
