Hi, my friends!

There is a sentence, "Story then turns to the history of England to explain why the freedom of all politicians to abide by their conscience was necessary...." (The True Cost Of Freedom Of Conscience) In this sentence, I want to know what's the meaning of "abide by their conscience"? In addition, can we say "what we say must abide by our conscience" in English? (Cause usually we say "we/he/she must abide by their conscience") Thanks!
