Testimony of Mrs. L.M., Former Anesthetic Nurse:
I want to testify to infanticide, not that we have actually killed a newborn of 28 weeks but worse: we have not had humanity come to his aid. … The young mother was an HIV positive drug addict who discovered her pregnancy late. Gynecologists convinced her to abort but the baby was born alive. Midwives simply put it in an empty box, naked in a stainless steel tub, cold, without any care. His mother was conscious during labor and delivery of the baby; she was crying and wanted to see her little one but the doctors decided that this child should die. They did not give the child to the mother to spare her. This baby was viable, he was breathing on his own and cried vigorously. I honestly think it was just left to die of cold …. Why do they fight to save some premature babies while others are given death without humanity?

So? You can't provide an example to a law that allows doctors to perform legal abortions, on demand, past viability. Your claim that doctors are killing healthy born babies meant to be aborted is a flat out lie.
ahh but we get bogged down in the details don't we
There is no legislation in effect to guide the doctors
If the fetus is catastrophically deformed and or diseased, isn't it more humane to euthanize it than to force needles into it's limbs and tubes into it's mouth for few hours of painful, suffering

Hi Charlie, What are the laws on abortion in Great Britain? I don't believe I've ever heard them.
Under UK law, an abortion can usually only be carried out during the first 24 weeks of pregnancy as long as certain criteria are met (see below).
The Abortion Act 1967 covers England, Scotland and Wales but not Northern Ireland, and states:
1) abortions must be carried out in a hospital or a specialist licensed clinic
2) two doctors must agree that an abortion would cause less damage to a woman's physical or mental health than continuing with the pregnancy
There are also a number of rarer situations when the law states an abortion may be carried out after 24 weeks. These include:
1) if it's necessary to save the woman's life
2)to prevent grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman
3)if there is substantial risk that the child would be born with serious physical or mental disabilities
only 1.2% of abortions are done after the 21st week of pregnancy so it's a rather small number to begin with!!!
but the problem is by saying it is ok to humanly deal with them then we open the door to abuse of the system that takes on a whole new set of numbers that over shadows the rest and begins to decay our morality by way of social programming in the culture
