Faculty bars prolife doctors from receiving its degrees and diplomas
Doctors and nurses who have a moral objection to prescribing ‘contraceptives’ which act by killing human embryos are to be barred from receiving diplomas in sexual and reproductive health even if they undertake the necessary training according tonew guidelines. Under new rules issued by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) earlier this year these doctors and nurses are also to be barred from membership of the faculty and from specialty training. TheFSRHis a faculty of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
It means that those who have a moral objection to fitting coils or prescribing the morning after pill cannot train to treat infertility, cervical cancer or HIV either. This effectively means that many thousands of doctors will not now be able to pursue a career in gynaecology and sexual health. 1
Questions have been raised concerning the legality of these rules. 2
