Ecuadorian gynecologists and obstetricians say no to abortion
"Life is inviolable from the moment of conception. The elimination of an innocent human being is ethically and medically speaking always unacceptable," they said.

They went on to note that "science teaches that life begins and conception. If this truth is also affirmed by religions it does not therefore cease to be a strictly scientific truth to only become a debatable religious opinion. Whoever denies that life begins at conception doesn’t have an issue with religion but rather with science. To deny this certainty of biology is not an expression of a lack of faith, but rather a lack of an elementary knowledge of human genetics, or even worse, of simple general culture," the doctors said.

"No matter what name is given to this new human person," they continued, "zygote, morula, blastocyst, embryo, fetus, newborn, infant, teenage, young person, adult, elderly, terminally ill... They are all denominations of the one and same human person in the different stages of development through which he or she passes."

The doctors acknowledged that certain pregnancies can present dilemmas, "but we know what not to do: directly kill the child, making ourselves into the owners and masters of life and death. Doctors are agents of life and not ambassadors of death," they said.
