Acting on Conscience

Frank Brennan

Publisher:University of Queensland Press

This is an intelligent and controversial volume that examines the role personal beliefs play in politics. Can a devoutly Catholic male politician make fair and objective decision on women's medical issues such as the right to contraception or abortion? When politicians invoke church leaders' support in going to war - and those leaders tacitly approve - is there a moral issue involved? “Acting on Conscience” attempts to tackle these topical questions head on by exploring the legal, moral, and ethical issues that have captured public imagination - and critically examines the public figures that pass judgement on them. This intelligent and thought-provoking volume asks if there is a place for personal beliefs in politics and examines how we can responsibly mix law, religion, and politics as both citizens and voters.
