Reform Section 8: What referring means

TEXT4In our Reform Section 8 post today, we help you dig deeper into the principles behind Section 8 of Victoria’s Abortion Law Reform Act.

This excellent article by Julian McGauran in Quadrant online explains how Section 8 infringes on human rights, especially the right to freedom of conscience.

It demands commitment to be part of the act of abortion, or, you lose your licence to practise medicine.

Think about that again. Section 8 says doctors must be involved in abortion – even if not in the final act – in order to practise medicine.

This is not a trivial matter.  As Rabbi Reuven Bulka said, “Referring is just a way of sloughing off your responsibility. If you’re opposed to these things, referring is the same as taking part in the evil.”

But that is exactly what Victoria’s laws demands: that doctors be complicit in killing babies.

The state should protect the lives of its citizens.

It should also protect the rights of health professionals not to participate in killing against their will.

Let your MP know it is time to repeal Section 8.
