right is might

Hats off to Lillian Ladele, the council worker who dared to take local government to court over her right to refuse to perform gay marriages on the grounds of her Christian faith ... and won the case. [The Times]

What a courageous, outstanding woman. What a precedent this sets.

But the employment tribunal verdict might have come one day too late for Catholic and Muslim doctors wishing to exercise their right to conscientious objection on the grounds of their faith. The British Medical Association's AGM, held on 7-10 July, was to consider a proposal to remove doctors' rights to refuse to refer a woman for abortion. [LifeSiteNews]

Surely the BMA cannot fail to take the Ladele case into consideration now?
