Abortion ruling welcomed by SPUC who backed Glasgow midwives
SPUC has welcomed the verdict in the appeal by two Glasgow midwives fighting for their right to opt out of abortion. Connie Wood and Mary Doogan, who won their appeal against the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board, are senior midwives each with more than 20 years' experience and had the role of Labour Ward Co-ordinators. SPUC has given the midwives its backing throughout the case. Paul Tully, SPUC's general secretary, said: “The difference this judgment makes is that hospital managers must recognise that the legal right to opt out of abortion goes beyond those who directly undertake abortions.
