Abortion

Abortion (Sex-Selection) Bill to be debated in Parliament on Tuesday 4th November.

In 2012, a national newspaper investigation revealed that some doctors were prepared to approve abortions on the basis of the baby's gender (read more here). 

The matter was investigated but the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute, despite finding that, in the case of two of the doctors, there was sufficient evidence to proceed. The decision caused widespread concern. Recently it was announced that 21 year old Aisling Hubert had launched a private prosecution, supported by the Christian Legal Centre - read more here

The Government has said that abortion on the grounds of gender is illegal. However, BPAS, the UK's largest abortion provider says that the law is silent on the issue. Even the British Medical Association suggests that gender abortion may be legal in some circumstances.

On Tuesday 4th November, Fiona Bruce MP (pictured), will introduce the Abortion (Sex-Selection) Bill which seeks to confirm that abortion on the grounds of gender is illegal. It will also provide an opportunity to consider what help can be offered to women who are under pressure to abort on the grounds of gender.

 

 

It is important that as many MPs as possible attend and speak in support of the Bill. 

A special website has been set up to help you understand the Bill - and to make it easy for you to contact your MP, urging them to attend, speak and vote in favour of the Bill.
