Women protest forced abortion outside Parliament after 'horrific' court ruling
A protest has been held outside the Houses of Parliament in London following a shocking UK court order to perform an abortion on a woman with a learning disability.
The Stand With Her demonstration on Tuesday night was held after three Court of Appeal judges overturned the ruling of the Court of Protection mandating that the abortion be performed on the woman, who is 22 weeks pregnant.
The Court of Protection ruled last Friday that the abortion should go ahead despite the opposition of the woman's Catholic mother, who had offered to raise the baby, and her social worker.
Questions are being asked by Christian and pro-life groups as to why the case was heard by Justice Nathalie Lieven, who has in the past campaigned for and represented pro-abortion groups, including abortion provider BPAS...
Finally ‚Ěó a reliable source, which is indicative that this incident isn't a repeat of some ancient story. Anyway this article was in the New York Times as was an article also in the Times about the original decision of this judge that this woman had to have an abortion
Neil, I consider the New York times are much more reliable source then the Onion, or Catholic sources.

The woman‚Äôs mother challenged that ruling, and on Monday three Court of Appeal judges overturned it, confirmed her lawyer, John McKendrick. He said the judges granted his client‚Äôs appeal after an ‚Äúemergency last-minute hearing‚ÄĚ on Monday.
