Doctors will face mounting pressure to ignore consciences, warns Bishop Vasa
October 03, 2012
Speaking to the Catholic Medical Association, Bishop Robert Vasa of Santa Rosa, California, has warned that many doctors in the US are “going to be forced to do something they may not want to do.”
The medical profession is under steadily mounting pressure to discard traditional moral standards, Bishop Vasa said. “American Catholics, and in particular American Catholic physicians, have to wake up to the fact that they can no longer presume that their individual choices about how they practice medicine in this country will be respected.”
