Abortion in England


The Economist has two articles on abortion in England this week. The first touches on this week's controversy over active euthanasia of severely disabled newborns. It does a good job summarising the debate, but despicably ends by praising the "brave" doctors for bringing up the question.

The second discusses recent attempts to push back the cutoff point for abortions from 24 weeks to 20 weeks.

Ironically, the second piece ends with a comment that pushing the cut-off to 20 weeks would be more likely if active euthanasia of newborns gains wider acceptance. That illogic is staggering. It would be illegal to abort a 40 week child in utero but legal to dope him to death 20 minutes after birth.
