US charity funds British abortion training



Here's a story that we all missed: US charity to fund abortion training for British medical students. Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) will provide money for students from Britain and Ireland to do two week placements at British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) clinics so they can learn how to kill babies in the womb (in a safe and legal way.)

The problem being tackled by the MSFC and the BPAS is that increasingly, students are not really into destroying human life and would rather do something good instead. The $100K provided to 60-70 would-be abortionists results in 85% of them taking up this glamorous career path.

Thanks to Neil Addison of the Religion Law Blog for the link to this story. He points out that during the 40 Days for Life campaign, the Guardian and BPAS repeatedly spoke of the 40 Days as an American style protest. Odd that there seems nothing wrong with American style funding for the training of abortionists.
