The battle over sex-selection abortion in Great Britain continues unabated and as confusing as ever. Last week, in a letter to doctors, the Health Minister said they will be issuing “urgent” guidelines following the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) not to prosecute two abortionists who were willing to abort female babies–not because there wasn’t sufficient evidence, but because prosecution would not be in the “public interest.” This conclusion followed a 19-month investigation spurred by the uncover work of Daily Telegraph demonstrated beyond dispute that there are abortionists in England who will abort a child because the mother says she does not want a girl.
