"This law makes me feel I am better off dead, I know I’m not, but that’s how it makes me feel," Heidi Crowter told a large group of people with Down’s syndrome and their families outside British High Court yesterday.
In a major pro-life victory, an attempt to introduced two extreme abortion amendments in England and Wales has failed, after the two MPs that introduced them decided not to take their amendment to a vote when they realised that they would most likely be defeated.
Last week, the Alliance of Pro-Life Students (APS) released the shocking results of a poll they conducted investigating the freedom of expression for pro-life students in universities. They found that over 70% of students have been placed in a situation where they felt that they could not speak about their pro-life views in lectures or seminars - but that pro-life societies continue to grow despite intimidation and censorship.
Early yesterday morning, Labour released their manifesto, highlighting what they plan to implement into the UK should they win the election. When searching their manifesto for 2019 online, the headlines appear to focus on the topic of how Labour pledge to bring hope to Britain, yet it is not so easy for pro-lifers to find out their stance on abortion. In fact, in the manifesto itself, the word “abortion” is only used twice throughout the entire document; and you have to read carefully to find it.
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.
