Frightening UK abortion statistic

Posted on April 1, 2016 at 8:26 AM

A parliamentary question in the House of Lords has revealed a frightening statistic about late-term abortions in the UK.  Labour peer Lord Moonie asked the government how many babies had been aborted at 23 weeks or later in the UK in 2014.  The government’s response was to confirm that 682 such abortions had been carried out.  That’s 13 babies every week.


While abortion at any stage is to be regarded as wrong as it takes away the life of an unborn child, abortions at this late stage - when the baby is fully formed in the womb - is nothing short of deplorable. 


Indeed, thanks to medical advances, many babies born at 23 weeks are now able to survive.  How then can we allow for a baby at one end of the maternity unit to be given life-saving treatment while a baby at the other end is legally killed?  It simply makes no sense.
