|As you may have heard in the news, a judge has ruled that a woman here in the UK must be forced to abort her 22-week old unborn child.|
The woman is understood to be in her 20s and has been diagnosed with having a moderately severe learning disability.
Completely ignoring her unborn child, the woman’s doctors claim that an abortion is in her best interests, despite the fact that the woman herself wants the child. Her social worker disagreed with the doctors and the woman’s legal team has said there was “no proper evidence” for their claim.
The pregnant woman’s own mother has offered to care for her grandchild when he/she is born and argued that her daughter’s doctors have “underestimated her ability and understanding…”
A number of people have been in contact with us this morning asking if there is anything they can do to help.
We have set-up a petition this morning to the Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, urging him to intervene in this case and do all within his power to prevent this gross overreach of the state. At a minimum, this will help make it clear that there is strong public opposition to this horrific decision.
