GP in strife over abortion beliefs

first_imgThe Telegraph 5 October 2013A DOCTOR risks being deregistered because he allegedly refused a referral for an Indian couple who wanted to abort a healthy unborn baby girl at 19 weeks, simply because they wanted a boy.Dr Mark Hobart, 55, has been under investigation by the Medical Board of Victoria for five months, accused of having committed an offence under the state’s controversial Abortion Law Reform Act of 2008. His patient and her husband requested a sex-selection abortion after an ultrasound revealed the foetus was female.They only wanted a boy, the husband told Dr Hobart, who, as a practising Catholic, had a conscientious objection to providing the abortion.Under Victorian law, he was obliged to refer the patient to a doctor he knew would terminate the pregnancy.But Dr Hobart doesn’t know any doctor who would agree to abort a healthy baby for sex selection reasons.“The general response from my colleagues is disbelief and revulsion,” he said.http://blogs.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/mirandadevine/index.php/dailytelegraph/comments/gp_in_strife_over_abortion_beliefs/Saturdaylast_img read more


Marshawn Lynch emulates Superman for 1st touchdown since 2015 in 49ers vs Seahawks: WATCH

first_img COMMENT 49ers vs Seahawks: Wild game results in 49ers eking out a winAny game featuring Marshawn Lynch is bound to be a wild one. The former Super Bowl champion did his best to pull the Seattle Seahawks through at the CenturyLink Field. However, as he learned on the night, no yard is guaranteed in the NFL, not even for Marshawn Lynch. With the Seattle Seahawks trailing by a huge margin of 13-0, Marshawn Lynch lined up behind Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Years ago, in Super Bowl XLIX, the Seahawks chose to pass the ball instead of handing it over to Marshawn Lynch. Then, Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted the play, which ultimately led to the Patriots clinching the championship. This time, however, the Seahawks chose not to repeat history. As soon as they handed the ball to Marshawn Lynch, the 49ers swarmed Lynch. The 49ers then ended up taking possession, thanks to rookie defensive end Nick Bosa. Also Read | Marshawn Lynch Should’ve Joined Raiders Instead Of Seahawks According To Derek Carr Also Read | Marshawn Lynch To Come Out Of NFL Retirement In ‘Beast Mode’ With The Seattle SeahawksThe game ultimately ended in the 49ers’ favour with a 26-21 scoreline. In the dying minutes of the game, Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister could have brought the Seahawks back into the game. However, 49ers’ Dre Greenlaw made what could quite possibly be the tackle of the season to stifle the Seattle Seahawks’ charge. Also Read | Eli Manning Inching Closer To Retirement After Losing Starting Spot In Giants’ Line-up Colin DCunha AIR BEASTMODE! 🔥🔥🔥 @MoneyLynch📺: #SFvsSEA on NBC📱: NFL app // Yahoo Sports appWatch free on mobile: https://t.co/iuRyhLy3dR pic.twitter.com/OwDobtHb1t— NFL (@NFL) December 30, 2019 WATCH US LIVE FOLLOW US SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV The picture of Marshawn Lynch jumping over the pile of San Francisco 49ers players in the fourth quarter was the one Seattle Seahawks fans must have been waiting for.
