Time Limit for Abortion? I Don’t Think So.
Every now and then the debate in the media re-emerges concerning whether the abortion time limit should be moved from the current law of 24 weeks. In todays online Daily Mail health section http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2268815/UK-abortion-limit-Born-23-weeks-twins-modern-medicine-marvel-raise-questions-laws.html there is a story about a couple who delivered twin boys prematurely at 23weeks gestation. They survived and are thriving and yet babies are allowed to be aborted up until a week later legally.
Pam Glover the mother of the twins has realised the irony of her situation and is struck by this and comments,
‘For us now, the idea that it’s possible to abort a child up to 24 weeks – older than Cameron and Mackenzie were – just doesn’t bear thinking about.
