Victory for freedom of conscience in Europe

An attempt to persuade Europe’s leading human rights organisation to fight to abolish the rights of doctors and nurses to conscientiously object to involvement in abortions yesterday ended in a humiliating defeacouncil europet.

Members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe not only roundly rejected a resolution to strip medical professionals of their rights to opt out of abortions but they also comprehensively rewrote the proposals so that they amounted to a defence of conscientious objection.

They even changed the name of the resolution from “Women’s Access to Lawful Medical Care: the Problem of Unregulated Conscientious Objection” to “The Right to Conscientious Objection in Lawful Medical Care”.
