After 50 years of abortion, the public is less keen on “liberalizing” it than decriminalization advocates claim. Why do pro-abortion MPs keep claiming otherwise? By SPUC—the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children A new opinion poll by ComRes has revealed that a large majority of the public oppose decriminalizing abortion. A total of 72 per …Continue reading "Third poll says public oppose abortion decriminalization in Great Britain"
By Dave Andrusko Abortion is already legal through 24 weeks, and legal on demand throughout pregnancy in Great Britain, if the child is prenatally diagnosed with a “physical or mental abnormality.” The government run National Health Service (NHS) pays for abortions. Prominent pro-abortion organizations are having success in a campaign to totally decriminalize abortion, meaning …Continue reading "British pro-abortion lobby wants two-doctor requirement eliminated for chemical abortions"
By Dave Andrusko Nothing but nothing upsets the Abortion Industry more, I would argue, than to be regularly inspected. After all, if (as PPFA, kindred organizations, and their legion of defenders tell us) abortion is safe, safe, safe, how could the abortion clinics themselves not be safe, safe, safe? They aren’t, of course, which is …Continue reading "British abortion clinics to be rated in bid to clamp down on “rogue” clinics"
By Dave Andrusko As even a couple of British newspapers remarked, there is a startling disconnect between the push to remove all limitations on abortions and public opinion polls which show more and more sentiment for more and more limitations. The latest numbers, from a poll conducted by ComRes, commissioned by Where Do They Stand …Continue reading "Huge Majorities in Great Britain want much stronger limitations on abortion"

By Dr. Peter Saunders Editor’s note. Dr. Saunders is a former general surgeon and CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship, a UK-based organization with 4,500 UK doctors and 1,000 medical students as members.

“It is unimaginable that the current abortion law would have passed through Parliament in 1967 if MPs had known then where it would lead” Editor’s note. NRL News Today has written many stories about abortion in Great Britain, particularly the revelation that there are abortionists who will abort a child because the mother (or …Continue reading "Member of British Parliament says where abortion has gone “almost defies comprehension”"
By Dave Andrusko I try to keep up with the politics of abortion in Great Britain but I would never claim to understand the nuts and bolts of how a parliamentary system handles a contentious issue most politicians wish would go away. Having said that, there is a fascinating development afoot, according to John …Continue reading "Bill to be introduced in Parliament to end “uncertainty” over legality of sex-selective abortions"

The data from these countries refute three myths about abortion that are prevalent in the international (and domestic) debate. Myth #1: Legalizing …Continue reading "Great Britain and Ireland: Data refute myths about abortion law and women’s health"
By Dave Andrusko Writing at National Review Online, Charles C.W. Cooke reviews the sad state of affairs in England and Wales. He reminds the reader that abortion was legalized in 1967 using the same over-the-top, no connection to reality arguments. The bottom line was that the law was carried across the finish line by the …Continue reading "A deeply entrenched culture of death"
By Dave Andrusko The abortion industry is continuing an orchestrated attack on Andrew Lansley, the British health secretary, who ordered unannounced inspections of more than 300 abortion clinics in England last month. Abortionists do not have to see a woman seeking an abortion in person, but they must certify that they are aware of her …Continue reading "Abortion Establishment Fights Back in Great Britain"
