ImediNews - Time limit for abortion may shorten
LONDON (UPI) — Pressure is growing in Britain to shorten the 24-week limit on abortion, with medical experts and church leaders saying it is outdated.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that critics of the current 24-week limit cite medical advances that would allow the survival of up to 2,000 fetuses that are aborted each year.

Recently published photos of Amilla Taylor -- the world's most premature surviving infant, born at just 10 ounces -- have fueled the call for a review of abortion laws. Advocates for a review are calling for the time limit to be shortened to 20 weeks.

Professor Stuart Campbell -- a consultant at the Create Health Clinic and formerly head of obstetrics and gynecology at King's College School of Medicine -- said a change would be healthier for women who are seeking pregnancy termination.

To me it seems utterly illogical that, in adjacent wards, one doctor is struggling to save a baby delivered at 23 weeks while another is aborting a healthy baby of the same age, he said.
