Freedom of conscience wins in 2 European high courts

Freedom of conscience won against charges of discrimination in two European high courts yesterday and today (Oct. 10 and 11), affirming the rights of a pro-life physician and a baker opposed to gay marriage. The latest case set a Norwegian legal precedent on freedom of conscientious objection in the medical profession, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) International said. The high court in Oslo, Norway affirmed the right of Christian physician Katarzyna Jackimowicz to refuse to implant in a patient an intrauterine birth control device (IUD) because of its abortifacient capabilities. Few days ago in London, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom affirmed the right of Christian bakers Amy and Daniel McArthur to refuse to bake a cake with depictions of the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie with the slogan "Support Gay Marriage."
