Catholic midwives lose abortion case at UK Supreme Court

Posted by:

The UK’s highest court has told two Catholic midwives they do not have the right to avoid supervising other nurses involved in abortion procedures.

The Supreme Court in London ruled that Mary Doogan and Connie Wood should have to support staff who are caring for patients having terminations.

The midwives previously won their case at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

Spain abortion: Challenge to bill fails in parliament

Posted by:

A controversial bill in Spain to end women’s right to abortion on demand is set

Abortion on demand was introduced in Spain under a law passed by the Socialists in 2010. The same law provides for the right to abort up to 22 weeks, if the mother’s health is at risk or the foetus shows signs of severe deformities.

The new bill would reverse the changes of 2010, only allowing abortion ...

‘You CAN abort a baby because of its sex’:

Posted by:

The head of the country’s biggest abortion charity has said women are legally free to terminate pregnancies because they are unhappy with the sex of their unborn child.
