UK: Now is the Time to Phone Your MP about Sex-Selective Abortion

The definition of social decay is when you have to restate blindingly obvious moral truths because too many people have forgotten them. Here’s one: you shouldn’t abort a baby just because it’s a girl. Or a boy.

In the UK, Fiona Bruce MP is trying to get her Abortion (Sex Selection) Bill passed through Parliament in the form of an amendment – and you can read all about her proposal at stopgendercide.org. It’s more an effort to clarify the law than to rewrite it, but it’s still greatly needed. There are studies that imply sex-selective abortion occurs, they’re backed up by independent witnesses, and The Daily Telegraph ran an investigation that revealed doctors allegedly consenting to terminations on the grounds of gender.

Whatever way one looks at it, there is absolutely no justification for not backing Bruce’s bill and no justification for the Government’s current lack of support. Its best hope comes from individual MPs fighting for its passage. So to all our UK readers, pick up your phone and start calling them: let’s make the switchboards glow.
