UK: Pro-Life Hail Victory as Pro-Abortion Amendments Fail

Pro-lifers in the UK are celebrating a victory as two pro-abortion amendments to the UK's Domestic Abuse Bill failed. The proposed New Clause 29, which would have allowed abortion on demand up to 28 weeks, was not selected for debate, and New Clause 28, to permit medical and surgical abortions to occur in any location in cases of abuse, was withdrawn when it was evident it wouldn't pass.  Pro-life MPs spoke against efforts to hijack the Domestic Abuse bill. An amendment by MP Fiona Bruce called for the government to conduct "an inquiry into the safety, number, and impact of abortions carried out under the temporary coronavirus crisis provisions where the place of abortion was the woman's home." The government agreed to do a study.  
 
"Thank you to the amazing group of pro-life MPs in Parliament who have worked so hard to ensure that these extreme amendments were defeated," said Catherine Robinson with Right to Life UK. "Thank you to the large number of organisations that have all come together to encourage their supporters to contact MPs and ensure this major attempt to introduce extreme abortion changes was defeated."
