Statement on proposed religious discrimination laws

13 December 2019

The peak body for obstetrics and gynaecology and women’s health will consider its response to the Federal Government’s second draft of its proposed religious discrimination laws.
Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists President Dr Vijay Roach said: “Along with other health practitioners, we welcome the opportunity to provide our considered thoughts on this very important issue.
“Every person is entitled, without discrimination, to appropriate health care. The College respects the right of our members to practice their own faith and act according to their own conscience but reminds all doctors of their duty of care to ensure safe, equitable and timely access for any person seeking medical attention.”
