Jade Rees Tragedy- Write to your MP!
Further to the reporting of the tragic case of Jade Rees I posted about yesterday here, there are important questions which need to be asked, as SPUC raise here.
Under the 1967 Abortion Act, abortion is only supposed to be permitted when continuing the pregnancy would pose a greater risk to the mother’s mental or physical health, or when the baby has a disability.
There are serious questions to answer for the doctors who approved Jade’s abortion papers. What was their justification for believing, “in good faith”, that abortion would pose a lesser risk to her health than the abortion which led to her suicide?
SPUC has written to the coroner who gave a verdict of suicide in the case this week, asking him to take further action. All pro-life supporters are urged to write to their MPs and ask them to raise the case with the Secretary of State for Health. You can find out who your MP is here.
