(Christian Concern)— The number of surviving babies born at 23 weeks has risen to a third, according to figures from the Office of National Statistics.
The new figures have prompted fresh calls from MPs for the abortion limit, which is currently 24 weeks, to be reduced.
It comes as pro-abortion activists are calling for abortion on demand, most recently through Diana Johnson’s bill to decriminalize abortion, and a £500,000 taxpayer-funded grant given to law professor Sally Sheldon, to write a book promoting the liberalization of abortion law.
