AUL among Groups Calling on the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to Stop Attacking Conscience Rights

Americans United for Life today is one of several national organizations signing a letter responding to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Committee on Ethics position statement, “The Limits of Conscientious Refusal in Reproductive Medicine (PDF).”

The letter, drafted by Christian Medical Association, points out that the ACOG position statement “suggests a profound misunderstanding of the nature and exercise of conscience, an underlying bias against persons of faith and an apparent attempt to disenfranchise physicians who oppose ACOG’s political activism on abortion.”
