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. Now, the official appeals ruling has been released, and the details make for an incredibly damning read.
Lady Justice King, who was on the three-judge panel, wrote that the evidence, “was simply not sufficient to justify the profound invasion of the woman’s rights represented by the non-consensual termination of this advanced pregnancy.” The original Judge was a prolific pro-abortion advocate who specializes in “human rights”, just not the human rights of the unborn. Just last year, Judge Nathalie Lieven was involved with the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission in a bid to elicit a UK Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights ruling that would deem the country’s strict abortion laws to be a violation of human rights.
It is shocking to see the clear-cut bias of a Judge who is insistent on pushing her pro-abortion agenda, even to the forced termination of a baby against the wishes of the mother. “Given that Justice Lieven is a well-known proponent of abortion, it seems that an ideological belief that abortion is a necessary therapeutic outcome almost won the day,” wrote Naomi Marsden at British Christian policy think tank, CARE. “We are heading in a very worrying direction indeed if we are starting to believe abortion is the most obvious, perhaps even more positive, outcome, rather than allowing the baby to live and a woman to be spared the grief of losing her child.”
