Tim Dieppe comments on the reasons behind this response.

An Iraqi doctor who practices as a GP in Berkshire was cleared of sexual misconduct at a Medical Tribunal Hearing this week where his ‘inappropriate’ behaviour was put down to his ‘different cultural background’.

It truly is a national tragedy, yet sadly one to which many continue to turn blind eye. In this reflection, Regan King looks at the abc's of abortion over the past 50 years and dedicates this to the memory of the 9 million and more babies who have been aborted since 1967.
