  • About the Edition

    The ability to decide whether, when and how many children to have is central to women"s lives. This investigation explores conscientious objection in reproductive health care in Latin America and how this issue could become an obstacle to women"s right to health---and even jeopardize their safety and lives.Conscientious objection requires that a balance be struck between the rights of objectors and the health rights of men and women. Health care providers are entitled to their beliefs, but these must take second place if expressing them means failing to fulfill a professional obligation, with the attendant potential for harm to the community. From an international human rights standpoint, States should accommodate sectarian providers as well as guarantee nondiscriminatory health care for all. It is neither viable nor ethically acceptable that conscientious objectors should exercise such an exemption without regard for the rights of others.
