Russia considers bill to “disqualify abortion as a medical service”

UPI reports:

Lawmakers in Russia say they are considering a bill to disqualify abortion as a medical service, allowing doctors to refuse to perform the operations.

It sounds like doctors are currently forced in Russia to perform abortions against their conscience. In the United States, medical professionals have legal protection that prevents them from being forced to participate in aborting a child. That freedom has been debated at various points over the last decade.
