The bit that I find shocking is that the Abortion Act doesnít actually make abortion legal, it just provides a defence, as long as the pregnant person has the permission of two doctors. While I understand that itís never been a problem to find two doctors, itís a bit frightening that itís not a right, when you see these lurches towards social conservatism.

If opting out is allowed, then where do we draw the line?

Can I opt out of teaching children whose parents voted UKIP?
Can parents opt out of lessons for their child from a known lesbian?

It's like the Christian who refused to marry gay couples in London a few years ago.  That was their whole job!  Marrying people.
Go do a different job within the council if you don't want to marry gays.
