It is common to believe that this could be a way to get rid of conscientious objection. “But this is the moral privacy that every medical professional has and should not be negotiated,” Pope Francis said.
Rome (European News).- Pope defends “conscientious object” in abortion cases. He also urges pharmacists not “accomplices” to this practice, which he has once more described as murder.
The Pope received representatives of the Pharmacists’ Union in the Vatican, and in any case asked professionals to show “closeness” to women experiencing this situation.
He said, however, that the issue was “very delicate”, and required “a lot of skill and a sense for justice.” The Pope mentioned the statement he made at a press conference in September after his return from his trip to Budapest, Slovakia.
Likewise, according to the Pope, in these situations, “life in ten, twenty, thirty years will pay a price.” You have to stay in the confessional to understand this very difficult price,” he concluded.
