Australian Doc May Lose License for Refusing to Abort Baby Girl


Not killing kids is apparently now considered unethical.

An Australian doctor could be struck off for refusing to abort a baby girl because the child’s parents only wanted to have a boy.

Mark Hobart said the couple’s request to terminate the 19-week-old fetus ‘offended my moral conscience’ and refused to consider carrying out the procedure.

But officials claim he had a duty to refer the couple to another doctor for help and advice – and now he could have his medical license revoked following an investigation into his conduct.

Not only are pro-abortion activists fighting any effort to ban the sex-selective abortion of baby girls, but they’re billing the attempt to institute such a ban as a War on Women.

And doctors who refuse can face the loss of their license.

‘It’s very wrong, I don’t know any doctor in Victoria that would be willing to refer a woman that wanted to have an abortion just because of gender at 19 weeks,’ he told Nine News.

‘I refused to refer the patient because there was no medical reason to do it and it offended my moral conscience.’

But when he went public with his story in April, the Medical Board of Victoria launched an investigation following a complaint from board members that he had failed his patients.

So much for “Do No Harm”. We’re reaching People’s Republic of China level ethics here.

    God bless the doctor for his moral clarity…the parents are moral misfits that don’t deserve natural children…if they wanted only female baby they should have gone to an adoption agency…where they could pick a little girl off the rack….

    Stop the War on Women! Let me kill this female child growing in me!

    Really? Are progressive so blind they can’t see the hypocrisy of this?

    • Ziggy Stardust

      Yes. The blindness is self induced because their religious doctine is equality. Anything that draws attention to inequality must be ignored included the inequality of an abortion culture ot a life culture and the inequality cultures that condone sex selection abortions to Western culture which does not must be ignored. Evan Sayat calls modern liberalism the Cult of Indiscriminateness.

      Yes they are.

      There is no hypocrisy in leftwing ideology because everything relates to only one thing-total control over human life. They defend every kind of murder and extermination of human beings because they

    I married a woman, who grew up in the People’s Republic of China. They were brainwashed to believe in overpopulation and China’s one child policy. Since they were also still traditional the first born had to be a boy.

    If you have only one child and the 1st born has to be a boy, it means that girls a less likely to be born. We all know the problems with this policy. China is in the process of dumping it.

    We have a daughter, which has been a great source of joy to my wife. If she had continued to listened to the left, her life would be the poorer.

    These people, who want to sex select their kids are wrong. It is wrong to drag doctors into their psychosis.

    The war on women will stop when the women stop making war on their babies.

    Remove a doctor and the sick are hurt.

    There can never be too much irony.

    Abortion being promoted as a Woman’s right, but yet being used to murder them before they are even born.

      There is no logic nor reason in the ideology of a leftist. Revolution against every form of reality and truth is their only principle. They can only succeed by making people victims because victims are easy to manipulate, indoctrinate and demand redress.

    A doctor faces losing his license to practice medicine because among other things, he wouldn’t betray the first principle of his oath: First, do no harm.

    The wanton destruction of the unborn reminds me of a chapter in Genesis:

    The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and His heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created–and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground–for I regret that I have made them.”

    How many in the medical profession today actually believe in the Hippocratic Oath? I would argue very few. They have been co-opted by every other profession by the radical extremist leftwing human haters who ensure no one has a job who doesn’t comport to their ideology. They have infiltrated every single institution in Western civilization and served to not only destroy what it means to be human, but humanity itself.


    And of course if Obamacare is permitted to stand, thugs like Kathleen Sebelius will soon have the power to revoke the licenses of doctors who fail to perform abortions here in America.

    What about the war on unborn women?

  • LoneRangler

    Fine. We could use a doctor like that in the States. Lefties just keep hopping from one crime against humanity to another. Democrats saw nothing wrong with slavery. The refused to see the evil of segregation. And now, they don’t have the moral compass to see the horrendous immorality of abortion.

    The Baby Holocaust is humanity’s worst crime. And the most obscene. Fifty three million babies are murdered by “abortion” each year. One million of them are murdered in America, which is a country of three hundred and thirty million. Ninety thousand are murdered in Australia, which is a country of twenty five million.

    Just don’t you dare oppose this obscenity. Last year, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security declared that all anti-abortionists are potential (meaning probable) terrorists.
