The spokeswoman for the regional government, Blanca Fernández, has assured this Wednesday that voluntary interruptions of pregnancy are not practiced in public hospitals in the region because all professionals are subject to conscientious objection, a "constitutionally recognized" right, reality, for other hand, which has been known for decades in Castilla-La Mancha.
A woman who wants to voluntarily interrupt her pregnancy in the region can do so, "but not in public hospitals, but in two concerted clinics, located in Albacete and Ciudad Real, "with the highest quality, security and privacy conditions for the women", pointed out the counselor, who added that "many women prefer private clinics because it is more discreet and they prefer not to go to a hospital", she pointed out.
The Minister for Equality and spokesperson explained that neither Sescam nor the Board can force doctors to perform abortions, and recalled that the new law does not eliminate this right and "it must be respected." She has wondered “how conscientious objection can continue to be respected and forced to be in public hospitals where abortions are performed. We did not find the formula to do this », she has added, and she has referred to the unique registry of the new law to prevent those professionals who object in public from performing abortions in private ».
