Why should I refuse the doppler and request a fetoscope instead and why?
As far as I've been able to find, I have not seen any long-term, controlled studies about the effects of ultrasound on fetal tissues. Women get it or they don't as they see fit, but there has never been a study where one group got it and a similar group didn't, and there is no established safe level of ultrasound..
There are plenty of longterm studies dating back to the late 1970s and early 1980s that show that ultrasound is not innoucuous and should only be used if necessary. There are studies done out of Oxford University by Alice Stewart that shows that ultrasound should only be used if necessary as it is not something that does not have side-effects.
