Andrea Vance in a lengthy article looks at three controversial conscience issues which are unlikely to be debated by Parliament unless a member’s bill on them is drawn. They are euthanasia, gay adoption and abortion.

- Abortion should be legally available on demand (which is the practice but not the law) up until the point where the foetus or unborn child could live unassisted
- Same sex couples should be able to adopt
