Catholic midwives’ appeal over supervising abortions to be heard in January

The two Catholic midwives in Scotland who lost their court case against supervising abortion procedures are to have their appeal heard in January next year.

Ms Doogan, from Garrowhill in Glasgow, and Mrs Wood, from Clarkston in East Renfrewshire, both object on religious grounds to participating in abortions and took their employer, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, to court over the issue but the ruling went against them.

This is terrifying and the peak of the slippery slope on which we now find ourselves standing

I will offer prayers for these two Midwives…Their courage and faith is a light in a world where evil is protected by law… The world is not just sinking into darkness but there are those who are welcoming it… May God have mercy on those who promote and participate in abortion.

Jesus I trust in You!!
