British abortion boss: Extreme New York bill “is what many of us have been campaigning for in the UK”

Feb 8, 2019 by

from SPUC:

People across the world have been shocked at the passing of an extreme new abortion bill in New York, which removes abortion from penal law, and allows it up to birth in some cases. This has been compounded by some American politicians defending abortion at the very moment of birth, and even infanticide.

What they are asking British politicians to support

SPUC has been warning that what politicians in New York have done is very much what the abortion lobby here is attempting to achieve. Now, that has been confirmed beyond all possible doubt — from the mouth of Britain’s top abortion provider.

Writing in Spiked online, Ann Furedi, chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), praises the horrific new law in New York as “a breakthrough for choice”. She goes on to say (emphasis ours):

“New York State has just signed into law an abortion-rights bill that is close to what many of us have been campaigning for in the UK. The Reproductive Health Act (RHA) removes the need for a doctor to perform some abortions, and takes abortion out of the criminal code, making it a public-health issue.

This is pretty much what the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, and other pro-choice organisations that are supporting the #WeTrustWomen campaign, have been asking British politicians to support.

She is referring to the campaign to decriminalise abortion — to remove it from the criminal law.

“Safe” abortion

Ms Furedi (who has openly said that abortion should be allowed up to birth, including because the baby’s a girl) then defends allowing healthcare workers other than doctors providing abortions, saying, “Abortion is safe and nurses and midwives are well placed to provide it.” (When describing abortion as “safe” she does not mention the doctor who was recently struck off for endangering women’s lives at a BPAS clinic, or the 11 women who were transferred for emergency hospital treatment after suffering serious injuries in a three-month period at the same clinic).

Late-term abortion “obvious and humane”

However, Ms Furedi saves her highest praise for the aspect of the New York law which has sparked the most outrage — late-term abortions.
