Laura Perrins: Midwives college should have nothing to do with barbaric late stage abortion


The Royal College of Midwives of has been hijacked by a pro-choice campaigner named Cathy Warwick and proposes turning midwives from caring for, nursing and helping pregnant women and their unborn children, into assistants of death, without even consulting the midwives.

In the Daily Mail Isabel Oakeshott explained eloquently  why lifting the term ban on abortions past 24 weeks is inhumane.

As well as being inhumane this latest push is in on very shaky legal ground indeed. The barbarity and inhumanity of terminating the life of a late-term baby is hidden behind such euphemistic terms as ‘reproductive health’ and ‘my body, my choice.’

However, there is no legal precedence whatsoever that an adult can ask another to destroy his own body, let alone the life of another. It is in fact illegal to ask another person to amputate a limb, for instance, even with consent, without a very good medical reason.

In other words if I asked someone to whack off my arm I could not hide behind the mantra “my body, my choice,” criminal sanctions apply. I cannot ask another permanently to disable or disfigure my body. So it is not a simple matter of ‘my body, my choice.’

And that is just a limb we are talking about. When considering pregnant mothers and their late-term unborn children, the person under attack is the defenceless baby. Although pro-choice advocates attempt to dehumanise the unborn in early stages of development, they cannot succeed with late stage babies. Every ultrasound photo ever posted on Facebook has put paid to that.

No matter, the RCM and their friends at BPAS say we should ‘trust women.’ This catchy little slogan implies anyone who opposes feticide, or a procedure that dismembers the child in-utero and then removes it limb by limb, does not ‘trust women.’ This slogan is designed to shut down the debate and ignore the horrifying reality that is late term abortion.

According to BPAS, women are automatons, computers in fact, who can coolly analyse the pros and cons and come to a decision. I do trust women, but I don’t trust abusive boyfriends who often put huge amounts of pressure on women to abort. Such a law would be a gift to them- they can pile on the pressure all pregnancy long in such circumstances and not just the first six months.

I don’t trust BPAS either, an organisation that makes £25 million from carrying out abortions each year. But if you want to expand your business the best place to start is to get rid of any regulations that do exist – such as term limits for abortions

This campaign by the RCM and BPAS proves that these organisation are pro-choice extremists. It in no way reflects what the majority of the British public want – namely a democratic compromise – messy yes – that abortions should be tolerated – not celebrated – early in pregnancy.

Most people, I believe, settle for this not because they think what is being terminated is ‘just a clump of cells’ but because the alternative – back street abortions on desperate women – is worse. In the hugely liberal abortion regime in the UK, late-term abortions of healthy babies are not necessary.

Most people would be shocked to know what really goes on in a late stage abortion. To propose such a procedure on healthy unborn children is nothing short of barbaric, inhumane and should not be tolerated in a civilised society.
