I don't think doctors and other medical staff should be forced to go against their conscience. I have an extreme example to relay here: a friend of mine years ago who worked as a young gynecologist in Germany was pressured to do abortions and it troubled him extremely, he ended up committing suicide. Doctors carry a heavy load meeting daily with patients who are suffering, or facing an untimely death and so on. We shouldn't put them under this kind of moral and psychological pressure/bind/strain. If a mother to be wants to take the life of her child, let her take the responsibility upon herself to find a doctor who agrees with her views. It might give her a little bit of time to change her mind and decide to save that child's life. The same goes for people who want to end their own life. Please protect doctors and their mental health! Thank you.
