British MPs Seek to Outlaw Sex-Selective Abortion

British MPs are tabling a parliamentary amendment today which would outlaw sex-selective abortion. Seventy-three MPs signed an amendment to the Serious Crime Bill which would clarify that the Abortion Act does not permit a pregnancy to be terminated on the grounds of the sex of the unborn child.

If selected for debate at the next legislative stage, the amendment will be voted on and, if ratified by a majority of MPs, it will become law.
