The equalities minister of Spain, Irene Montero, has proposed the creation of a mandatory register of healthcare professionals who are conscientious objectors. This already exists for euthanasia.
“Forcing the conscience of physicians in order to expand the number of physicians available in all communities is, in addition to being unconstitutional, a bad solution, which from the perspective of the medical profession would be considered unacceptable, illegal, and unjust.”
Irene Montero, would like to see abortion decriminalised and says that
“the right of physicians to conscientious objection cannot be above women’s right to decide.”
