Babies aborted for not being perfect in Britain

Well, looks like Brits are not morally or ethically better than the Nazis. From Babies aborted for not being perfect:

The ethical storm over abortions has been renewed as it emerged that terminations are being carried out for minor, treatable birth defects.

Late terminations have been performed in recent years because the babies had club feet, official figures show.

Babies are being aborted with only minor defects.Other babies were destroyed because they had webbed fingers or extra digits.

Such defects can often be corrected with a simple operation or physiotherapy.

The revelation sparked fears that abortion is increasingly being used to satisfy couples’ desire for the ‘perfect’ baby.
A leading doctor said people were right to be ‘totally shocked’ that abortions were being carried out for such conditions.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that between 1996 and 2004, 20 babies were aborted after 20 weeks because they had a club foot.

It is one of the most common birth defects in Britain, affecting one in 1,000 babies each year. That means around 600 to 700 babies are born annually in the UK with the problem, which causes the feet to point downwards and in severe cases can cause a limp.

However it can be corrected without surgery using splints, plaster casts and boots. Naomi Davis, a leading paediatrician at Manchester Children’s Hospital who specialists in correcting club feet, said: ‘I think it is reasonable to be totally shocked that abortion is being offered for this.

‘It is entirely treatable. I can only think it is lack of information.’

Akin to the same lack of information that Brits have over their own participation in treacherous behavior towards Jews.
