The percentage of conscientious objectors in public hospitals is almost 90% in some Italian regions. But what if everybody were objectors? We could argue that the easiest solution is to forbid people to object, in order to protect women's right to health. But would it solve the problem? Or could we produce major political and social problems? This paper frames the issue from the philosophy of law's viewpoint, facing possible misunderstandings and political exploitations of conscientious objection.
