Midwife Supervisors who can't even supervise anyone who has anything to do with an abortion, in the NHS, in a country where its a woman/familiy's right to choose?
Am I understanding it right? I just think they're in the wrong job then if so.
I appreciate their right to not do the abortion themselves though and I agree with that.

I think if I was in that situation I'd rather have someone caring for me 100% regardless of the reasons I found myself in that situation, than be cared for by someone whose religious beliefs could in any way impact on the care they were giving me in case something like this were to happen again: www.bbc.co.uk/.../world-europe-22213630 (link to the Savita Halappanavar verdict).

Oh bloody hell.
Right I understand now and fully agree that they are in the wrong job.

but isnt it the same as the pharmacists who wont prescribe the morning after pill due to religious beliefs?
i do thinkt hat they are in a profession where you act for the pateints best interests though and i dont think religious beleifs should have anything to do with the best care possible for a patient and i also think they should work in a non judgemental way but im just pointing out that there is other instances where similar has happened ie with pharmacists

Coming from a heavily religious background (Jehovah's Witness, who also don't agree with abortions) I can kind of understand where they are coming from as I know my family members/family friends would be the same if they were midwives/nurses.
Although that's not to say I agree with it!!!
CP I totally understand where you're coming from as well. Tough one really, what if in every other area of their job they excel, 'we' would lose 2 fully trained midwives??
