There have been calls for an inquiry after minister disclosed that birth rates for girls and boys vary noticeably according to where their mothers were born.
It was the first official statistical evidence potentially backing up concerns that sex-selection abortions are being carried out in Britain.
Fiona Bruce, the Conservative MP for Congleton, has tabled an early day motion which calls on the Department of Health to ensure the data of aborted foetuses is reported “so that statistical evidence of crime cannot be hidden”.
The early day motion was also signed by Jim Dobbin, the Labour MP for Heywood and Middleton.
Lord Alton of Liverpool, a crossbench peer and former MP who campaigns against abortion, said the Government “should take note of the welcome news that MPs from both sides of the Commons have joined forces to call for an end to the Department of Health's refusal to collect data on sex selection abortions”
They are saying a nonviable mass of tissue has a sex and it is illegal to exterminate too many nonviable tissue masses of the same sex?
They are acting like these were living babies before they were killed. This kind of thinking shows them guiltier all the time for their choices to commit premeditated murder.
