Abstract/Description: In this paper, I discuss why conscientious objection should not be used in cases of abortion. According to a modern day interpretation of the Hippocratic oath, doctors have the responsibility to do whatever it takes to better the lives of their patients. This includes abortion if that is what the patient requests. I propose a law making abortions more accessible for women, stating that there must be at least one doctor at every hospital who is capable and willing to perform abortions.
