Forced Abortion Ruling for Disabled Woman Overturned, Deemed ‘Profound Invasion’ of Human Rights

Last month, a British judge ordered that a disabled woman must undergo a forced abortion despite the woman, her mother and social worker insisting that she keep the baby.

Thankfully, the Court of Appeal overturned the ruling after a legal challenge was mounted by the woman’s mother, who had vowed to help care for the child after birth. The common-sense judgment could not have come at a more crucial time, just as the woman was preparing to go through pre-op for the abortion procedure.
