Let doctors have freedom of conscience if they choose not to refer a woman for an abortion

Dr Mark Hobart, a Melbourne GP, might face discipline... or even the loss of his right to practise medicine. Why? He refused to refer a woman for abortion at 19 weeks. What was the couples' motive? They wanted a boy instead of a girl!

The law on this matter in Victoria is a denial of freedom of conscience. Why? Doctors who have a conscientious objection to abortion are required by the law to refer women who want an abortion to another doctor... and one who does not have a conscientious objection.
