Conscience clause in proposed Irish abortion law “passing the buck”

Fr Vincent Twomey, Emeritus Professor of Moral Theology at the University of Maynooth, has criticized the protection of conscience provision in the proposed Irish abortion law as “passing the buck”.

“It’s the Pontius Pilate answer. ‘I’m not going to do it but somebody else can do it for me’.”

Sean Cardinal Brady warned that the proposed law was “potentially menacing” for hospitals and for freedom of religion.[Herald]
