Abortion in Chile: Medical teams may benefit from the right to conscientious objection



In Chile, the draft bill to decriminalise abortion, which included a conscience clause only for the surgeon carrying out the abortion, is currently being revised by the Senate (see Abortion in Chile: medical teams deprived of conscientious objection except for the surgeon). Medical teams involved in abortion will finally have the same right to object as doctors. Conscientious objection will remain a personal issue. It does not address institutions that remain constrained by law.
