Law ‘does not prohibit’ sex-selection abortions, DPP warns
Guidance issued by The British Medical Association (BMA) advised doctors that “there may be circumstances, in which termination of pregnancy on grounds of fetal sex would be lawful”.
The disclosure is expected to spark fury among dozens of MPs who have criticised the medical establishment for seeking to redefine abortion laws.
Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, today publishes a detailed memorandum explaining the controversial decision by the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute two doctors who agreed to arrange illegal abortions based on the sex of an unborn baby.
Mr Starmer warns that current guidance for doctors needs to be urgently updated amid widespread concern over practices in clinics which do not appear to fall foul of the letter of the law.
The two doctors at the centre of the controversy were exposed by the Telegraph after being secretly filmed offering to abort baby girls, even though this is widely thought to be illegal.
Of course any slightest infringement of abortion rights is part of the “war on women” /sarc.
Seriously, if you are pro-choice or even favor it in limited cases how do you justify this? Are XX chromosomes a birth defect? Maybe they’ll identify the “gay gene” and offer orientation-selection abortions. Let’s see how that flies.
