Nurses ‘to join call for axeing of all time limits on abortion’

Mar 25, 2018 by

The Royal College of Nursing is poised to back a controversial feminist campaign calling for all time limits on abortion to be axed.

The powerful body is set to announce a new policy after consulting its 435,000 members on ‘decriminalising’ terminations – sparking a mutiny from anti-abortion nurses.

More than 370 RCN rebels have rejected the incendiary proposal, declaring: ‘Not in our name’.

But if – as expected – the RCN backs the axing of time limits, it will join the Royal College of Midwives, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and British Medical Association in doing so.

They have thrown their weight behind the radical We Trust Women campaign – organised by Britain’s biggest termination provider, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service – which is calling for all laws protecting the unborn child from abortion to be scrapped.

That would mean removing strict legislation preventing abortions after 24 weeks for anything but the most serious medical reasons.

Today, The Mail on Sunday can reveal a key RCN adviser behind the college’s expected move is also a senior executive at BPAS who holds strident pro-abortion views.
