Draft doctors' guidance undermines human rights

18 June 2012

Draft guidance for doctors by the General Medical Council (GMC) undermines human rights. SPUC made the comments in its submission to the GMC's consultation on personal beliefs, which closed last week.

In its submission, SPUC said that the right to conscientious objection is a human right, which the GMC should recognise and protect far more fully.

Patients need doctors of integrity who practise medicine in accordance with their conscience, including in regard to pregnant women and their unborn children. [SPUC, 15 June]
