World Medical Association Supports Conscientious Objection to Abortion and Assisted Suicide (UK)

The World Medical Association, an international confederation of medical associations representing  physicians, has  voiced its support for conscientious objection including in cases  of abortion, euthanasia and assisted suicide. The General  Assembly of the Association has unanimously  approved an addendum to its  respected International Code of Medical Ethics. Its code now recognises the right to conscientious objection so long as the patient’s health is not  endangered.
