Pro-Life group slams president of the RCOG for "insane" decriminalisation proposal
16 September 2017
The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has responded to the news that Professor Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, has called for abortion to be decriminalised and made much more freely available.
SPUC's Dr Anthony McCarthy commented:
"It beggars belief that Professor Regan describes a life-ending procedure, a lethal attack on an unborn child, in the same breath as going to 'get your bunions sorted'. Women grieve their babies sometimes for years, acutely regretting the speed and casual approach of abortion providers, and their failure to alert them to help available to have the baby. Doing abortions has a hardening effect and those responsible for them are now seeking to normalise an act that is the very reverse of medicine. One can only hope that members of the College will have enough remaining concern for the women they serve to vote against this insane proposal."
