The Conscience Laws and Healthcare Conference was held on Saturday 25th July 2009. The event was organised by the group- Doctors in Conscience in order to examine the implications The Victorian Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 will have on the practice of healthcare for conscience objectors.
The conference also considered the threat that anti-conscience laws pose to the freedom of thought, conscience and religion from a cultural, political and legal perspective.
