The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists told CBN News on Thursday that doctors who choose not to perform or refer abortions don't need to worry about that issue affecting their certification.
Wednesday, CBN News reported on new ethical guidelines on abortion that could jepoardize certification for obstetricians and gynecologists.
On March 14, the Bush administration called on the Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology to reject a policy that appeared to link the new guidelines to certification.
But today, the college released a March 26 letter to its fellows to CBN News.
The letter states that "an obstetrician-gynecologist's board certification is not determined or jeopardized by his or her adherence to this Opinion."
