Stop BMA Supporting Abortion Up to Birth

Jun 18, 2017 by

PETITION from CitizenGo:

IN BRIEF: The BMA are deciding whether they will support the complete decriminalisation of abortion. This will mean increasing the abortion limit to 28 weeks and possibly even birth. Shockingly, decriminialisation will also making sex-selective abortion – the killing of girls for the crime of being girls – perfectly lawful. We must stop the BMA from doing this…

The British Medical Association (BMA) is holding its Annual Representative Meeting (ARM) on the 25-29 June and, once again, certain factions within the British Medical Association (BMA) are trying to force the organisation to support the total decriminalisation of abortion. This will mean that the abortion limit is increased to at least 28 weeks (7 months) and, if the proponents of decriminalisation get their way, will mean that abortion is made legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy for any reason whatsoever.

This would mean making sex-selective abortion legal. It would be perfectly lawful to kill unborn girls for the crime of being girls. This is a revolting form of sexism which no civilised society should tolerate.

It’s hard to believe that there are people seriously advocating this practice, but unless we do something, the BMA could adopt “decriminalisation” – potentially abortion up to birth – as their official position on abortion. Prominent abortionist and advocate for decriminalisation Wendy Savage has given vocal support to abortion on the grounds of the sex of the child.

Not only is abortion up until birth deeply unjust, these proposals are also seriously out of step with what the public, and women in particular, want.
