The number of physicians providing abortion services in the United Kingdom has fallen in recent years, so much so that even finding a hospital that performs abortions is a struggle throughout much of Great Britain, according to a recent article from The Times And while the total number has fallen, the most prominent area is in the arena of late-term abortions, as quoted below:
Peter Fitzpatrick TD has described abortionists BPAS as a ‘horrifying charity” after their spokeswoman defended aborting babies because they were girls, and went on to defend late-term abortions. She also told Senator Rónán Mullen that she “didn’t keep track” of the number of abortions she had carried out but said it was “hundreds, maybe thousands”.
The UK's Healthcare watchdog, The Care Quality Commission, has uncovered a horrific bonus culture at discredited British abortion giant, Marie Stopes. Care Quality Commission inspectors found documentary evidence of a policy in which staff received bonuses for convincing women to abort their children. The policy, which ran right across all seventy of the Marie Stopes abortuaries, meant that staff phoned women who had not gone through with the abortion to offer them new appointments.
British abortion campaigner Dr Wendy Savage has ignited a storm of controversy in an interview with The Mail On Sunday where she called for sex-selective abortions to be allowed. Sex-selection abortions are often called gendercide because the child is usually aborted simply because she is a girl.
The Citizens Assembly also hosted a robust debate between Dr Helen Watt, who advocated for the right to life of unborn children and mothers, and Professor Bobbie Farsides who is pro-abortion and a member of BPAS, the abortion provider.
A shocking new report has found that Marie Stopes, Britain's largest abortion provider, was seriously failing to protect the safety of women and disposing of aborted babies in waste bins, just two of the findings made by inspectors amongst a litany of shocking and disturbing failures.
Lord David Steel, the British peer responsible for introducing the Abortion Act of 1967, which open the door to abortion on demand in Britain, has called for Northern Ireland to fall into step with the United Kingdom in regards to abortion policy and to abandon its current laws which protect mother and baby from abortion.
Last week the abortion agents, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service attacked the work of Abort 67, the pro-life group who are stirring a new debate about abortion in Britain, in the online newspaper, the Huffington Post.
The UK Independent reports that the "abortion of female foetuses solely to ensure that families have sons is widely practised within some ethnic communities in Britain and has resulted in significant shortfalls in the proportion of girls". Reporting on an investigation by the newspaper, Science Editor, Steven Connor said that "the practice of sex-selective abortion is now so commonplace that it has affected the natural 50:50 balance of boys to girls within some immigrant groups and has led to the “disappearance” of between 1,400 and 4,700 females from the national census records of England and Wales".
The Life Institute has said that the government must listen to evidence from British abortion providers who have said that doctors routinely bend the mental health clause in the British Abortion Act to allow women to have abortions. As revealed in the BBC's Panorama programme, Ann Furedi, the chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, has admitted that British doctors actively “pretend” that women's mental health is at risk so that they can sign off abortions without questions being asked.
