The New American: Abortion laws in Great Britain are still fairly strict by global pro-abortion standards. In England, Scotland, and Wales the Abortion Act of 1967 stipulates that a woman may only legally kill her unborn baby up to the 24th week of pregnancy if two medical doctors say it’s okay — and then only if the physical or mental health of the mother is at risk, or if the baby would be born with extreme physical or mental handicaps.
While the law has been increasingly flouted in a culture given to personal freedom and convenience, the British Medical Association (BMA), the key professional organization of doctors and medical students across the United Kingdom, has voted in favor of the decriminalization of abortion up to the 28th week of pregnancy — paving the way for “abortion on demand” across Great Britain.
After intense debate among physicians at the BMA’s annual meeting in late June, delegates “voted in favor of a motion calling for a change in the law,” reported the UK’s Daily Mail.
“The BMA will now adopt this stance, which would allow terminations right up until full-term, as its formal policy.”
Opinion: “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth … and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
28 weeks is a fully-formed premature baby:
And 39+ weeks is a full term baby:
