BROU-SUR-CHANTEREINE, France, September 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) A pro-life French obstetrician who described abortion as homicide is drawing fire from France's pro-abortion media and the country's government itself.
Even his own union is distancing itself from the pro-life physician's comments on abortion.
Dr. Bertrand De Rochambeau, president of France's union of gynecologists and obstetricians, stood up for his right to refuse to commit abortions in an interview with a French television reporter.
Reporter Valentine Oberti states in that interview that a conscientious objector clause to allow physicians in France to opt out of committing abortions is something that angers some people. In the interview, she also argues with the medical expert on air, insisting a pre-born baby is not a human life.
Broadcast last week, that interview on the Quotidien TV show includes a back-and-forth between the reporter and physician, who has performed abortions in the past but no longer does, which has incensed pro-abortion activists in France.
"I get up at all hours of the night," says De Rochambeau in French in a videotaped segment of that interview. "I perform very difficult operations using my gut instincts. And those things which run counter to my beliefs, I do not do them. We are not here to end lives."
At that point in the interview, the French reporter starts arguing back.
"When you say 'end a life,' a child yet to be born is not a life in the legal sense. It is not homicide to perform an abortion," she counters in French.

What in the hell has happened to most western women
Their self-worth is defined by having the right to kill.
Legality is not always correct. We have our own history in the US which demonstrates this truth. At one time, African-Americans were not considered legally human. But that legality was wrong. A-A ARE human no matter what the law says. Babies still in the womb ARE human, too, no matter what the law says.
Yes, a life, and an individual human - from the moment of conception. Undeniable fact.
