Norwegian doctor fired for refusing to administer abortion procedure
A doctor in Norway has lost her job after taking a stand for the sanctity of life.
Dr Katarzyna Jachimowicz refused to comply with demands that she administer abortifacient devices, when told to choose between following her conscience or keeping her job.
A petition in support of Dr Jachimowicz has been signed by more than 50,000 people, but is yet to receive a response from the Norwegian Government.
“I simply wanted to be a regular family doctor. I found myself with a choice and couldn’t act differently,” Jachimowicz said in an interview with religious news website DEON.PL.
When Jachimowicz first started working in Sauherad in Norway, conscience protections were in place for medical professionals.
