Medical professionals, including GPs, have threatened to quit if the pro-abortion legislation forced on predominantly pro-life Northern Ireland does not make adequate provisions for conscience rights.

Dr. Andrew Cupples is among the 135 medical staff, including doctors, nurses, midwives, and pharmacists, who signed a statement indicating that they are unhappy that they may have to participate in abortions in an “ancillary, administrative or managerial capacity.”

“It is indeed welcome that healthcare professionals who object to abortion do not have to participate in a ‘hands-on’ capacity in the procedure,” the signatories conceded.
