Government urged to cut ties with abortion industry after one in five clinics accused of breaking law
By Madeleine Teahan on Friday, 23 March 2012The Government must break its ties with the abortion industry following an investigation indicating that one in five abortion clinics are suspected of breaking the law, a pro-life group has said.
Following a series of unannounced raids, the Care Quality Commission discovered that doctors were regularly falsifying consent forms and patients were not receiving acceptable levels of advice and counselling.
Anthony Ozimic of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) said: "The CQC's findings confirm what pro-lifers have been saying for decades: that abortion clinics routinely fudge or flout the law, regulations and professional guidance on abortion.
"It confirms all the other evidence that abortion is available virtually on demand. In 2007 Dr Vincent Argent, the former medical director of Britain's largest private abortion provider BPAS, told Parliament that there was widespread falsifying of abortion forms by abortion clinics.
