The UK Royal College of Gynaecologists supports killing 570 babies a day

28 June 2010

The RCOG has released two new reports, on foetal awareness and abortion on the ground of foetal anomaly. The foetal awareness report claims that a foetus cannot feel pain before 24 weeks because the connections in the foetal brain are not fully formed. Paul Tully, SPUC's general secretary, has said that the RCOG supports the killing of 570 babies every day in Britain, at all stages of pregnancy, and that the report is just a way of denying that what they are doing is evil.

German court approve euthanasia by neglect

Germany's federal court of justice has overturned a conviction against a lawyer who advised his client to remove the feeding tube of her 72-year-old mother in 2002. Alex Schadenberg, founder of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, said that this decision is wrong because the court wrongly defined fluids and food as medical treatment, rather than basic care. Mr Schadenberg said that the court has approved the direct and intentional dehydration of people who are not otherwise dying. [Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, 25 June]
