UK Court Orders Forced Abortion On Woman

Oct 16, 2019 by

from SPUC:

UK doctors are to perform a surgical abortion on a woman with learning difficulties without her consent, a Court of Protection judge has ruled.

The Court of Protection in London heard how an unidentified woman in her twenties, has the ‘mental capacity of a toddler’ and is believed to be 12 weeks pregnant. The judge has ordered a surgical abortion to be performed on the woman later this week, after hospital bosses urged the court to authorize the termination.

Mr Justice Williams has ruled that medics can physically restrain the vulnerable woman, if necessary,  in order to administer a general anesthetic and perform the abortion.

Police are investigating whether the woman’s pregnancy was caused by an act of sexual assault.

Cruelty And Barbarity

SPUC’s Deputy Chief Executive John Deighan said:

“This is an outrage which should shock every right-thinking person. It is a level of cruelty and barbarity reminiscent of how people with mental health issues were treated in the 1930s of Nazi Germany. To force abortion on any person is abhorrent and to do so in the name of medicine calls into question the structures of law and justice in our society.”
