At J4MB we’re opposed to the vast majority of elective abortions in the UK, and if our proposals in this area were adopted, 97% of elective abortions would become illegal – those carried out on the spurious grounds of limiting the risk of injury to the mental health of women with unwanted pregnancies, when no evidence exists to support the theory that abortions have any ‘therapeutic effect’.
Particularly objectionable, we feel, are gender-specific elective abortions, regardless of the gender of the foetus in question. Such abortions are illegal in the UK, yet are carried out by sympathetic doctors – ‘We don’t ask questions, it’s your choice’. The justice system refuses to press charges against these doctors, even when the evidence against them (e.g. video footage) is overwhelming, saying it wouldn’t be ‘in the public interest’.
