Rights and Obstetric Practice: Legal Issues
- Alberto Mazza*
| . . . The scientific advances in the field of health
today make possible a number of practices and treatments
which sometimes place the professionals who have to apply
them in a clear dilemma whereby they question the goodness
of such practices and not just their legality. . . In an
increasingly pluralistic society, there will be more and
more practices that a doctor may object to . . .It would
imply a severe injury to the doctors' rights if they were
left aside for refusing to undertake certain practices for
personal convictions. . .
