OMG! British Doctors agree, a Woman can Actually make her own choices!
Are you sitting down? Because this disturbing news might send you over the edge into catatonic shock: the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, Britain’s largest abortion provider, thinks women know best when it comes to their own reproductive health. Scandalous!!
Of course, that’s not exactly The Telegraph’s angle:
Ann Furedi, the chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, said that pregnant women and doctors actively “pretend” that the women’s mental health is at risk so that they can sign off abortions without questions being asked.
And the chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners said a woman simply saying that she did not want to be pregnant now counted as enough evidence to justify an abortion.
In Britain, a woman can get an abortion up to 24 weeks into a pregnancy if she has the approval of two doctors who confirm that the risk to her physical or mental health (or that of the fetus) would be greater if the pregnancy was carried to term. According to The Telegraph, about 98 per cent of the 190,000 abortions performed every year in England and Wales are approved on the grounds that the mother’s mental health would be at risk. This, apparently, is a farce and an outrage. Ironically, abortion advocates agree.
