According to an article in The Guardian (24-IV-2013), two Scottish Catholic midwives appealed their right to conscientious objection not to collaborate in any action related with abortion. The Glasgow health service argued against their being able to object. The two midwives, Mary Doogan and Concepta Wood, subsequently appealed to the Scottish High Court, which ruled in favour of their right to object to participating in abortive acts. Judge Douvia stated in the ruling that the right to conscientious objection exists and extends “not only to the actual medical or surgical termination but to the whole process of treatment given for that purpose”. Undoubtedly a great victory in favour of life.
