The Pro-Life Maternal-Fetal Medicine Physician: A Problem of Integrity
Fleischman, Alan R.
Hastings Center Report. 1995 Jan-Feb; 25(1): 22-26.
In the final analysis, we are not persuaded that a physician with strong pro-life convictions can be a participant in the practice of maternal-fetal medicine without betraying her or his integrity. We respect the attempts of thoughtful pro-life maternal-fetal physicians to reconcile their deeply held moral or religious beliefs with their profession's standards of care, but it may be best for all concerned if individuals with strong objections to abortion avoided the practice of modern perinatal medicine.
