The obbligation of a doctor is to provide services which maintain and cure the human body?
and provide first aid whenever he can, while a pharmacy is obligated to hand out whatever a doctor says his patient needs. Everything beyond that, like plastic surgery, is not an immediate obligation of a doctor. How do you feel about birth control ? Right now a doctor is only obligated to terminate a pregnancy if there are complications involved that might harm the mother and a pharmacist isnt any more obligated to sell morning after pills than he is to sell candy. Should a doctor be obligated to perform an abortion on a r**e victim that whishes one or should he be allowed to refuse rendering services to somone he diagnoesd as healthy forwarding the girl to a psychatrist to deal with her emotional trauma ? Right now random abortions are not a doctors job or obligation although he might be qualified for it, just like plastic surgery, piercings, tatoos, branding, should it become one ? Juniper antibiotics go with the maintainance of the body. And yes it is up to the doctor to decide weather or not to give them, like with every other medicine. If the doctor refuses to take responsibility for giving you antibiotics you just have to accept it, the way you have to accept if he refuses to interrupt the natural process of a pregnancy if there is no immediate medical necessity to do so. and an abortion IS an elective service, Iam not even sure the doctor can perform an abortion against your will if you are almost sure to die. A doctor may refuse his services yes, he is not obligated to medicat an hypochondria or to give you that piercing or abortion, however if you get seriously sick and a qualified doctor refuses to render his services for no good reason he can be held responsibel. and JUNIPER a jehowa whitness who acts the way you described braches the oath. Refuses to give Antibiotics when it is NOT the best course of action. There really is no reason from a medical point of view to interrupt an normal pregnancy. What is a r**e clinic ?

It is quite strange that you compare reproductive health services to elective procedures.

Doctors refuse to provide abortions all the time. That's what abortion clinics are for.

As long as there are enough doctors willing to perform them (enough to make it accessible to everyone who chooses to have them) than I have no problem with some doctors choosing to opt out. If it does get to a point where a woman is unable to obtain one because there is no doctor in the area willing to do so, then... More
