Abstract

The objective of this study was to analyze physicians' attitudes towards induced abortion with normal fetuses and fetuses known to have an abnormality in various degrees. A total of 193 physicians (internists,pediatricians, gynecologists and neurologists) answered a self-administered questionnaire. The questions were about voluntary abortion; voluntary abortion with malformed fetus; abortion because the fetus has anencephaly; and two questions were asked for the use of prenatal diagnosis and abortion in case of the fetus being the physician's child. The majority of physicians were male, over 35 years, religious and did not have experience with genetic diseases. Few physicians approved abortion of a normal pregnancy, 6 out of 10 agreed if the fetus was malformed, and this number increased to 8 or 9 out of 10 in cases of severe or lethal genetic disease. Gynecologists and neurologists were less inagreement with abortion when pregnancy is normal than the internists and pediatricians (7% vs. 20%). In general the physicians did not haveconsistent answers. Agreement for abortion was influenced by religious values. (C) 1997 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics.
