For Life and Liberty
Former Military Hospital doctor, Dr. Jacques de Vos, has been charged by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) for advising a patient that “abortion is the killing of an unborn human being.” Today and tomorrow, he is scheduled to appear before a six-member panel disciplinary enquiry in Cape Town. Doctors for Life is representing Dr. de Vos, who has been barred from practising as a doctor for the last 2 years! This is his first opportunity to respond to the victimisation and discrimination for standing for the right to life of preborn babies and advising women on the adverse effects of abortion on both the mother and the unborn child.
This case and the incredible hostility and hypocritical attempts to prevent the Unplanned film from being screened, highlights how the fight for life and for freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and freedom of expression are inextricably linked. What are the issues at stake? What does the Bible say? What can we practically do to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and to rescue those being led away to death?
“Who will rise up for Me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for Me against the workers of iniquity?”
