ZAMBIA – Conscientious objection to abortion: Zambian healthcare practitioners’ beliefs and practices

This in-depth study of conscientious objection to abortion provision in Zambia is based on qualitative interviews (n=51) with practitioners working across the health system who object and do not object to providing abortion services in accordance with their cadre.

Regardless of whether practitioners self-identified as providers or non-providers of abortion services, they presented similar religiously-informed understandings of abortion as a morally-challenging practice that is, or not, shifted from iniquity to acceptability based on the reasons for which it has been requested or the likelihood of unsafe abortion if services are not provided.
