Default Latin American docs: Don’t count on me to do abortions,

‘Don’t count on me’ to do abortions, say Latin American doctors in new video campaign

Quote:
SANTIAGO DE CHILE, June 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) –
Groups of Chilean and Peruvian doctors recently launched video campaigns in their respective countries to tell fellow citizens that they will refuse to cooperate if abortion is legalized.

“We chose to become health professionals to accompany, protect and take care of everyone’s life,” say Chilean students in their video titled “Don’t Count on Me,” which is part of the “Nadie Sobra” (No One is Expendable) movement started by a woman who was told her now 9-year-old boy was “unviable.”

“If you are thinking we will perform abortions, don’t count on me, because in Chile no one is expendable,” a doctor says in one announcement.

“To care, respect and protect life is the essence of our profession,” say Peru physicians in their video. “The conceived baby, whether planned or not, has the right to be born, and nobody has the right to suppress its life,” they concluded.

Pictures from doctors all over Latin America holding banners that read “don’t count on me,” have swarmed the campaign’s Facebook page and their video has gotten almost 6,000 “likes”.

The Peruvian campaign is titled As Innocent as You and began last month when the country’s National Congress was evaluating the decriminalization of abortion in cases of rape after several feminist NGOs presented the proposal.In Peru abortions are legal if the life or health of the mother are at risk.

The Hippocratic Oath, to which all doctors swear, states in its original version: “I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.” However, modern versions often eliminate any reference to abortion or euthanasia.

Chile has a total ban on abortion and boasts the lowest maternal mortality rate in Latin America. President Bachelet is seeking to legalize it in cases of rape, when the life or health of the mother are at risk, and when the baby is ‘unviable.’

On May 26, the Peruvian Congress voted not to broaden the country’s current abortion law.

Quacks are a penny a gross here. And their practice is to prescribe symptom medication for what ails the body, and more medication to offset the side effects of the crap they prescribe. There are good doctors here, though. The serendipity is in finding one-->when you don't need one.
