Concern over Controversial Advice from Royal College to Women Seeking Abortion

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' new guidelines for doctors, nurses and counselors in relation to abortions have upset anti-abortion campaigners and are termed totally absurd. Moreover, a question mark has been put over the ethical values of doctors and their regard for the value of human life.

According to the newly drafted guidance, the women considering terminations should be recommended for abortion and be advised that it's generally safer than continuing with pregnancy.

The new guidance seems to be strange as usually doctors are always supposed to give their advice on case to case basis after assessing an individual's circumstances and needs of every patient. The guidance also says that women should be informed that there is no psychological harm in carrying out an abortion.

The new guidelines, it is believed, imply that it's more dangerous to have a baby than to go through an abortion. Moreover, it's termed as total abuse of medical power and psychological manipulation of women who are passing through vulnerable phase.

Professor Patrica Casey, a Consultant Psychiatrist, feels that the new guidelines have sent out a message that it worrisome.

The guidance has been drafted by 18 senior gynecologists, nurses and abortion providers. It also recommends that pregnant women who had already decided to go in for abortion should not be subjected to compulsory counseling.

After the rising concerns, the Royal College is considering to rewrite some of the recommendations.
