This is a truly shocking piece of news in this morning’s Telegraph;

Women in the UK are being granted illegal abortions by doctors based on the sex of their unborn baby. Doctors at British clinics have been secretly filmed agreeing to terminate foetuses purely because they are either male or female. Clinicians admitted they were prepared to falsify paperwork to arrange the abortions even though it is illegal to conduct such “sex-selection” procedures.

Andrew Lansley, the Health Secretary, said: “I’m extremely concerned to hear about these allegations. Sex selection is illegal and is morally wrong. I’ve asked my officials to investigate this as a matter of urgency.”  The disclosures will add to growing concerns about the regulation of abortion clinics and the apparent ability of women to secure terminations “on demand”.

I guess one of the BIG concerns this raises is the efficacy of the controlling Care Quality Commission, the NHS watchdog, which is already facing criticism over its failure to regulate care homes properly.

In my view those doctors facilitating “on demand” abortions such as those mentioned above should be struck off. I also wonder at the mindset of prospective parents who seek to abort on the basis of the gender of the baby.

  1. Is there a breakdown by ethnic background for the people requesting this procedure?

    My guess is that it will 99% be those people who are often referred to as Asians. Since it is a normal occurrence in their culture they won’t find it as shocking as we do.

  2. Dogisgreat,

    You’re correct. The (India) Indians, Chinese and many Muslims revere the males because they carry on the “family” name and will become warriors defending their faith to the death.

    As we have been instructed by the Muslims, women are merely chattel to be covered up, beaten and basically ignored…………UNTIL, the Muslim adult male runs out of 7.62mm AK-47 ammo, RPG’s, IED’s and tires of copulating with young boys and sheep.

    Then its hop on mama #1, 2, 3, 4…….Take your choice.

  3. They should be more than struck off.

    The Abortion Act 1967 legalised abortion in certain ways for certain reasons on certain victims. Outside of this, Section 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act remains in force.

  4. Yes Pete, Tim Worstall sums it up precisely. Not withstanding the Abortion Act (1967), there is freely available, no serious questions asked, abortion in the UK. Yes, in some areas, it may be difficult to get this service at a local NHS hospital but there is the option of going to another area or going “private”.

    Abortion (or killing unborn babies to be precise) is a lifestyle choice. The fact that some women are choosing to abort female babies because they are female provides a dilemma for those who argue that women should have control over their own bodies as this is clearly a “sexist” decision, as abortion and sexism are major on their agenda.

    Lets call a spade a spade. If Doctors are to be prosecuted/disciplined for performing abortions because the unborn baby is female, then they should be also prosecuted for performing abortions for convenience, which is why most abortions are performed now.

    There is widespread hypocrisy on this subject.

    What has happened with the Abortion Act (1967) is also an arguement against any legal formalization of Euthanasia.


  5. The moral gulf between those who favour abortion and those who are opposed (to most abortions) became quite clear when I saw pictures of women protesters who had banners reading – I REGRET MY ABORTION.

    I wondered whether their opponents could find similar numbers of women protesters who would have banners reading – I WISH I HAD AN ABORTION. For those here who favour abortion, would your mother wave such a banner? Could anybody’s mother wave such a banner?
