Ann Furedi, head of a chain of abortion clinics (BPAS) in England, defending sex selection abortions [1]:

“We either support women’s capacity to decide, or we don’t. You can’t be pro-choice except when you don’t like the choice, because that’s not pro-choice at all.”

Nearly 200,000 abortions in England and Wales are now carried out each year, and abortion ends more than one in five of all pregnancies.

Some 55,000 terminations are performed by BPAS [British Pregnancy Advisory Service].
