The Hippocratic Oath

A bill is being debated in Indiana to restrict illegal immigrants from "receiving most types public assistance along with all but emergency medical care." One doctor isn't happy.

Sarah Stelzner, a pediatrician with the Indiana University School of Medicine
and Wishard and Riley hospitals, said the legislation goes against the
Hippocratic oath.

I'm curious if this doctor minds when doctors go against this part of the Hippocratic oath:

Nor will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion.


I think the spirit of the oath would apply to drugs and surgical approaches, as well as pessaries.
