UK: Legislation to Ban Abortions for Minor Disabilities

new bill in the British Parliament would prohibit abortions for minor conditions such as club foot, cleft lip or palate. Currently, unborn babies diagnosed with these minor disabilities are legally aborted up until 24 weeks gestation. Yet these conditions can be easily corrected after birth. The legislation was sponsored by Tory MP Fiona Bruce, whose own son was born with a club foot that was corrected. "This is a sensible law change that I am inviting all MPs, regardless of where they stand on the wider issue of abortion, to get behind and support," said MP Bruce. "It's time our legislation caught up to reflect society's positive change in attitudes towards those born with disabilities, and medical advances in the intervening years." The bill has the support of a cross-party group of British MPs.
