A story in the Daily Telegraph explains how an overwhelming majority of British GPs do not wish to perform abortions.
Family doctors are threatening a revolt against Government plans to allow them to perform abortions in their surgeries, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
Four out of five GPs do not want to carry out terminations even though the idea is being tested in NHS pilot schemes, a survey has revealed.
The findings will throw doubt on Government trials to provide medical abortions – using drugs in the early stage of pregnancy – outside hospitals.
In a survey for The Daily Telegraph that was carried out by Doctors.Net, an online organisation representing GPs in England and Wales, only 14 per cent of the 2,175 GPs who responded were willing to undertake the procedure.
More than three quarters said they were not willing to carry out abortions and 54 per cent of these strongly objected to the idea.
The comments at the bottom of the news story are quite interesting. Most seem strongly against the idea of forcing doctors to abort babies.
