(SPUC) A South African doctor is facing charges of unprofessional conduct after telling a woman scientific facts about unborn children.
According to Sowetan Live, Jacques de Vos allegedly told a patient that “a foetus is a human” and claimed that abortion kills a human. After de Vos stated these scientific facts, his employment was terminated and he was prohibited from practicing medicine.
De Vos is now facing four charges of unprofessional conduct from the Health Professions Council of South Africa at an inquiry which has commenced this week. According to the report, de Vos allegedly “infringed” the patient’s “autonomy with his anti-abortion utterances.”
“Based On Ideology, Not Scientific Fact”
SPUC Education and Research Director, Dr Anthony McCarthy described the charges as “based on ideology, not scientific fact.”
Dr McCarthy said: “From a scientific point of view, the question of when a new human life begins is relatively uncontroversial. Human life begins at fertilisation as a single cell.”
