Our thanks to Mike P for this. An Asian woman aborted a female foetus following pressure from her family to do so. An extract:
When the woman reported the crime to police they did not recognise it as honour-based abuse at first, said Ms Sanghera.
But when they pursued the case and the woman said she wanted to prosecute, the CPS refused to press charges for the offence, claiming it was not in the public interest and that it was a “family matter”. The husband later pleaded guilty to controlling behaviour and was sent on a course.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
