Muslim Med Students Refuse to Perform Abortions

There was a day when Catholics of all professions believed enough in the tenets of their faith to make a difference in what they would and would not do.

From News, 17 February 2003:

It is reported that British medical schools have started to restrict the number of Muslim students because they refuse to learn about abortion. The proportion of medical students from ethnic minorities in Britain has risen from 10 percent to 33 percent over the last 20 years, and the Council of Heads of Medical Schools has expressed concern that tutors are now unable to teach the full syllabus on account of the refusal of Muslim students to participate in certain courses which run counter to their faith.
