Labour pledge to allow abortion up to birth for any reason
In their manifesto, the Labour Party have pledged to introduce abortion, on-demand, for any reason, up to birth.
On page 48 of their manifesto, launched on the anniversary of the IRA Birmingham pub bombs, it states:
‘We will uphold women’s reproductive rights and decriminalise abortions.’
This will allow unlimited abortions right up to birth, making it the most extreme abortion law in the world.
Labour pledge to permit abortions in England and Wales well beyond the present 24-week limit, which is already around twice the average time limit on abortions in Europe which is commonly limited to 12 weeks.
Decriminalisation of abortion involves repealing sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 along with the Infant Life Preservation Act.
The Abortion Act 1967, which sets out exceptions to this underlying legislation, still allowed for over 205,000 abortions to take place in England and Wales in 2018, 41% of which were repeat abortions.
Without this underlying legislation, the Abortion Act would become redundant.
This change in law would scrap the current 24-week time limit for abortion.
It would also mean scrapping the existing legislation which says you have to give a reason for an abortion and that two doctors have to sign it off.
What you are left with is abortion available on-demand, for any reason, up to birth.
A VOTE FOR LABOUR WILL COST INNOCENT LIVES.
