Scottish midwife, great friend of ours and all round remarkable person, Mary Doogan, tells the Mail why she is supporting a much-needed change in the law regarding conscience. She was forced out of her job as a senior midwife after refusing to supervise abortions.
“I don’t believe any midwife should be put in that position. It goes against why I went into midwifery in the first place. My role was to bring life into the world. My patients were the woman and the baby. I have always felt a professional duty to both.”

The next meeting of the Fertility Forum will be on Tuesday 27th February at 7pm, at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. The forum is open for anyone to attend and you don’t need to have come to a previous meeting or be an expert. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend, there is some background information to be emailed out to participants.
The Fertility Forum was created to facilitate discussion about how to promote the Church’s beautiful teaching on fertility and sexuality. We had our initial brainstorming meeting in January, which was a great success and had 21 participants. The discussion was divided into several areas: methods of NFP, apps, NaPro Technology, marriage preparation and education (within the family, parishes and schools). Some thinking has gone on since then and several participants have contributed paragraphs about these areas of discussion. We look forward to continuing the discussion on Tuesday, as there is a need for more initiatives to develop to promote fertility awareness. Please join us if this is a topic you are interested in.
