The number of late term abortions carried out past 24 weeks gestation on UK children with Downs syndrome have doubled in the past 10 years, recent figures have revealed. Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: It is barbaric that a child who may have a disability in the UK can be aborted right up to birth. This practice has no place in a civilised society.
The recent figures, obtained in response to a parliamentary question by Lord Alton, have revealed that in 2018, the number of UK children aborted past 24 weeks gestation following a possible Downs syndrome diagnosis increased from 11 in 2009 to 23 in 2018.
In addition, the figures also expose that the number of abortions carried out in the UK following a Downs syndrome diagnosis have risen by almost 30% over the past decade. Public push back against disability abortion
Recent weeks have witnessed a public backlash against abortion following a disability diagnosis.
Over 1,800 people with Downs syndrome and their families have signed a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, urging him to insure than abortion for disability will not be permitted in Northern Ireland.
Earlier this year, US states including Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee, urged federal appeal courts to uphold state laws which ban abortion following a diagnosis of Downs syndrome. Disability late term abortion
The 1967 Abortion Act permits abortion until birth if a baby is suspected of having a foetal anomaly.
Surgical abortions that are carried out in the second trimester of pregnancy involve using a sopher clamp to grasp and rip the limbs of the child. The head is clamped and crushed and the abortionist must assemble the body parts on a tray to ensure no remains are left in the womb.
Abortions carried out in the third trimester of pregnancy involve administering unborn children with a lethal injection to the heart.
Because people with better chromosomes are just so much better people, right? How many monsters in human form have had Down syndrome? Well, lets see.... theres.....
Oh. The tyrants, mass murderers, and great evil doers NEVER have Down syndrome. So you kill those with it in utero why, exactly?
We live in Spain. A while ago we were walking through town and saw a girl with Down Syndrome sitting outside playing with her tablet. I told my wife she should take her picture because it wouldn’t be long before she never saw anything like that again. It was obvious this girl was loved and nurtured but it was like looking at the last of the dinosaurs. I’m frankly surprised there are any Down Syndrome children born in the UK anymore. The Europeans want to eliminate them entirely.
And you wonder why I’m such an advocate for those with Down Syndrome.
A friend of mine’s daughter is 23 and pregnant with her first child. Initial tests indicate the child may have Down’s Syndrome (they have not done amniocentesis yet). It’s not definite yet but it is a very very difficult situation and I don’t know what they are going to do if the child indeed has Down’s Syndrome. I’m praying for my friend and her daughter and the child.
And it won’t stop here. Any defect will result in an abortion. Every couple will keep trying and aborting until they get the “perfect” child. Sad.
The final solution for useless eaters.
Why did Britain fight the Nazis?
Eugenics and the Nazi program of extermination of psychological/physical undesirables. Because they wanted to be the ones to decide who gets exterminated.
Dad wanted to abort, Mom said No Way.
Baby was born perfectly healthy.
Every day since, Dad has had to look at his daughter, knowing that he once wanted her gone.
Iceland has 0 babies born with down’s. One guess why.
The UK has had a cavalier attitude towards abortion for some time, even most Tories are probably pro-death. BTW: the typical U.K. Conservative has the ideology of Michael Bloomberg outside of immigration.
“Success” for elimination of a disability is always 100% if you can kill the disabled.
Praying out loud for those souls and for the Holy Spirit to act and stop the atrocity.
