Current law supports disability abortions

  • The current law permits an abortion to take place up to 40 weeks if tests for disability indicate that there is a 'substantial risk' that the child might be born 'seriously handicapped'.
  • For example over 90% of women who discover they are carrying a baby with Downs abort.
  • The legal limit for all other abortions is 24 weeks.
