Session 9: Abortion

We live in an age when the terminating of unborn babies is commonplace. For many, the ethical considerations regarding this issue are largely settled, with most people believing the assertions made by the “pro-choice” advocates, that the decision to terminate a pregnancy should rest with a woman. Some lean more to the less liberal view that there should be restrictions on the availability of abortions in consideration of matters such as the mother’s health, the health of the fetus etc. But a growing number of advocates for abortion take a far more liberal view that abortion should be an option for a woman even up until late pregnancy, or even, in some cases, even an option after birth.

In this presentation, given at the 2013 Unbelievable? Conference, Dr Trevor Stammers, gives a powerful presentation on this issue as it relates to the UK. While many of the statistics and even some of the finer legal considerations will differ from the Australian experience, the concerns and the principles discussed are very much the same.
