Briton Sues NHS for Firing Her Over Her Pro-Life Views | LifeNews.com.
Margaret Forrester, a psychological wellbeing practitioner with the Central and North West London NHS Trust, has filed suit against her employer for breaching her freedom of religion and freedom of speach. Mrs. Forrester was disciplined and suspended after an informal conversation with a colleague during which she presented a booklet and her views that abortion adversely affects the physical and mental health of women.
Mrs. Forrester, a Roman Catholic, is represented by the Thomas More Legal Centre. One of their spokespersons is wondering why the NHS objects to a discussion of abortion among their health service professionals: “If the NHS is not willing to allow the effects of Abortion to be discussed by NHS staff it raises a real question as to what the NHS is afraid of.”
