Nearly 400 nurses are protesting the UK’s Royal College of Nurses proposed support for a campaign to introduce abortion on demand.

A total of 396 nurses have signed a letter to Janet Davies, the chief executive of the UK’s Royal College of Nurses (RCN), saying that they object to the College’s coercive plans to take a position on the decriminalization of abortion in the United Kingdom.

In England and Scotland, abortion is legal until the unborn baby is 24 weeks old if a doctor agrees that allowing the baby to live would injure the physical or mental health of the mother or her other children, or if the child would be born with a serious disability.

However, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and other abortion businesses have been campaigning to have abortion decriminalized completely. To this end, it has been wooing and winning allies like the British Medical Association, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and the Royal College of Midwives.

Another potential ally is the Royal College of Nurses, headed by Janet Davies.
