Pro-abortion MPs attempt to hijack domestic abuse Bill to get abortion on demand

Jul 6, 2020 by

from The Christian Institute:

Pro-abortion MPs are seeking to introduce abortion on demand in England and Wales by hijacking the Government’s Domestic Abuse Bill.

Diana Johnson MP, who is leading the activists, has tabled two amendments to the legislation, including one that would repeal Sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.

If repealed, abortion would become permissible for any reason and the current requirement for the consent of two doctors would be abolished.

‘Right to life’

Johnson’s amendments are due to be considered on Monday 6 July during the Report Stage of the legislation.

If both passed they would make abortion available on demand and remove safeguards on where abortions could take place.

The Speaker of the House, Sir Lindsay Hoyle has yet to agree that they fall within the scope of the Bill.
