A Catholic doctor who refused to sanction a sex-selective abortion is fighting for his career after a complaint was made against him.
Dr Mark Hobart could be struck off Australia’s medical register for declining to arrange an abortion of a healthy girl because her parents wanted a boy instead.
He was asked for an abortion by an Indian couple who wanted to a boy but the mother was 19 weeks pregnant with a girl.
But he would not accede to their demands because the pregnancy was at an “advanced stage” and because he saw no medical necessity for it.
He also refused to refer the woman and her husband to a second doctor who would arrange the procedure.
The couple found another doctor and went ahead with the abortion a few days later.
