SPUC welcomes appeal date for Glasgow midwives

15 August 2012

Connie (left) and Mary (right) are fighting for their legal right not to be involved in abortions

SPUC has welcomed the news that an appeal will be heard next January in the case of two Glasgow midwives who refuse to supervise abortion procedures.

In February this year a judge in the Scottish Court of Session said that the midwives, Mary Doogan and Connie Wood, had to accept management instructions to oversee abortions performed by other midwives on the labour ward. SPUC has underwritten the midwives' legal costs.

People wishing to make donations towards the midwives' legal costs should telephone SPUC on 020 7091 7091. [SPUC, 14 August]
