Catholic MPs were today given a strong
hint by Gordon Brown that they may be allowed to vote with their
conscience over the controversial Embryology Bill.
The Prime Minister pledged a traditional free vote on a bid to lower
the abortion limit, and for the first time suggested he may also give
way to demands from Catholic ministers not to force them to compromise
their religious beliefs over the rest of the Bill.
It is a pretty wacky world we live in when
an article talks about someone
being “allowed” to vore their conscience and to not be “forced” to vote
against their religious beliefs.
