SPUC opposes call for change to abortion law
Comment Email Print
 The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) is opposing the proposal by Lord Steel of Aikwood for a change to British abortion law. Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's political secretary, said: "Lord Steel's proposal is not aimed at reducing the numbers of abortions, as his call for a general ban on abortions after 12 weeks was accompanied with a promotion of abortion on demand before 12 weeks. "Lord Steel is trying to lead parliamentarians into the trap of repeating the mistake of 1990, when a bill to restrict the time limit for abortions backfired and led to the legalisation of abortion up to birth for handicap. Parliamentarians owe it to the smallest and vulnerable human beings not to back half-baked proposals which will lead to even more killing by abortion. "Parliamentarians must not be deceived by such Trojan horses which hide an agenda for total deregulation of abortion. "It is essential that legislative proposals aimed at changing the abortion law are not put to parliament in this the most anti-life parliament in history because we are certain that a majority of MPs would vote to make abortion even more widely available. "The pro-abortion lobby are not only actively campaigning for abortion on demand but also for abortions to be performed by non-doctors, the specific targeting of nurses to become abortionists and the provision of chemical abortion in family planning clinics."
