Christian doctors and nurses who refuse to prescribe emergency contraception are being denied qualifications from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaeco
The organisation will let medics who object to the pill on religious grounds take courses but say they will be ineligible for a diploma at the end.
The RCOG has insisted the policy has always been in place, and nothing's changed.
However, Doctor Peter Saunders who is the CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship has told Premier's News Hour why he wants the guidelines abolished.
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.Set up a monthly gift
