From the UK Telegraph.
Britain’s top law officer is to come under pressure in the House of Commons this week to say why the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute over the gender selection abortion scandal.
Dominic Grieve, the attorney general, will face questions from Tory MPs who want the Government to tighten up the 1967 Abortion Act in the wake of the scandal.
The comments come as Britain’s most senior prosecutor prepares to release a paper justifying his decision not to prosecute two doctors over an abortion scandal.
The Tory party is the conservative party of the UK, although they aren’t very conservative. Still, sex-selection abortion is such a heinous crime that even they are shocked by it. To kill a person simply because she is female and not male? That’s that real war on women right there. A war on women by leftists, where conservatives take the side of the women.
Two doctors were exposed by an undercover Daily Telegraph investigation offering to abort babies because of their gender.
The Telegraph’s probe prompted a 19 month investigation. However prosecutors told the doctors that they will not be charged even though there was enough evidence, because it did not consider the issue to be in the public interest.
Mr Starmer has not commented on his reasons not to prosecute and is due to issue his reasons in the coming days, before he stands down as DPP at the end of this month.
The CPS said the key reason for the decision was that the doctors would still be investigated by the General Medical Council.
Mr Starmer was criticised by his predecessor as DPP Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, who said the decision had been “very dubious”.
Lord Macdonald said this amounted to letting them “avoid criminal action” because of their professional status – undermining the basic principle that “everyone is equal under the law”.
The two doctors, Dr Prabha Sivaraman and Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan, have had restrictions placed on their work while they are investigated by the GMC.
Meanwhile, in Australia, doctors are being persecuted for not performing sex-selection abortions.
