VANCOUVER, Dec 1 ( – The Protection for Conscience Project was launched today with the opening of its web site at According to a press release, the non-  denominational, non-profit group “supports authentic freedom of conscientious choice for everyone.” The project will push for protection of conscience legislation, provide information on protection of conscience legislation worldwide, promote clarification and understanding of the issues involved to assist in reasoned public discussion, and act as a clearing house for reports from people who have been discriminated against for reasons of conscience. 

The site offers a forum, for those who have suffered conscience discrimination, to relate their experiences. The site catalogues the need for conscience legislation with numerous Canadian and international examples of job discrimination and termination based on refusal to participate in abortion. 

Site Administrator Sean Murphy warns, while abortion is currently the main focus of the need for conscience legislation, euthanasia, assisted suicide and demands for new reproductive technologies will soon add fuel to the debate.
