Sex-selective abortion - a couple of things you can do
In February 2012, the Daily Telegraph reported on an undercover operation, by their journalists who clandestinely filmed doctors who agreed to carry out abortions simply on the grounds that the baby was female. The Crown Prosecution Service has decided that it would not be in the public interest to prosecute the doctors.
Clearly this is a disgrace. There needs to be a good response from the public indicating that such a prosecution would certainly be in their interest, since there is some hope that the decision might be reviewed. As a small part of this, there is a Facebook page "An investigation into sex-selective abortion is in the public interest" If you use Facebook, do take a moment to pop over and "Like" this page. You will find there also some guidance on writing to the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt.
