'I quit over beliefs on abortion'

Dr Rob Hardie left his Wiltshire practice in 2004 in disgust at the new GP contract and specifically its guidelines on abortion.

He told Pulse: 'With abortion, there's the ethical problem of destroying a life, and even if you have different beliefs there's surely an ethical problem in doctors being forced to do something they do not believe in. It's immoral and unjust.'So it's fantastic to see young doctors making a stand against this – not just Catholics but other Christians and Muslims too.'
