Midwives defend right to conscientious objection in Scottish court
1 February 2012
Two midwives from Southern General Hospital in Glasgow are challenging the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board over their right not to be involved in abortions in the hospital’s labour ward.
SPUC is supporting the midwives' stance and is underwriting their legal costs.
The case follows a lengthy grievance procedure that has failed to resolve the matter. [SPUC, 17 January]
