This is, of course, only the beginning. Depend on it, if the resolution passes it will be but a short while doctors are required to assist in suicides and euthanasia.
The right of doctors to refuse to refer women for abortions on conscientious grounds is under threat from the Council of Europe.
A draft resolution would end the opt out and compel medical staff to carry out the procedure itself against their wishes if patients have nowhere else to go for the treatment.
It also calls for a register of doctors who object to abortion on conscientious grounds and a complaints mechanism for women who feel aggrieved by a refusal of a doctor to either grant an abortion or to perform the procedure directly.
