Abortion's conscientious objectors

The distaste at performing abortions combined with ethical and religious convictions has led to an unprecedented increase in the UK in the number of doctors who refuse to carry out the procedure. Catholic general practitioner James Gerrard is among the growing list of conscientious objectors refusing to refer patients seeking the operation. "I had made my mind up on abortion before entering the medical profession," he says. "I have not come up against any aggression because of my stance ... I think people understand it is a personal choice and respect that."
