Eugenics in the UK

From LifeNews

This is appalling. What next? Will mothers start aborting babies with overbites or because they don't like their eye color?

A British religious official who earlier spoke out on abortions of children with cleft palates is speaking out about new reports showing abortions there on children who have clubbed feet. The condition is operable and not life-threatening and Rev. Joanna Jepson says such abortions should be illegal.
She accused doctors of pressuring women to have abortions when unborn children are diagnosed with any physical or mental disability.

"Women shouldn't be put in the position where they are under pressure to abort from the medical profession," she told the Birmingham Post newspaper.
