Pro Abortion Fanatics Issue Death Threats in UK

A British MP proposed a bill to reduce the legal limit on abortion from 24 weeks to 21:

Nadine Dorries’s Bill – entitled ‘Termination of Abortion’ – would have reduced the legal limit of abortion from 24 weeks to 21, and would have required a 10 day “cooling off” period for a woman to know what her risks concerning both abortion and carrying her pregnancy to term “as a condition of informed consent”. Mrs. Dorries argued for the bill on the basis that the latest scientific research had placed fetal sentience at approximately 21 weeks…

The response to her rather modest proposal was an all out jihad by pro abortion groups:

[A]bortion activists sent her death threats…according to the Bedford News. “My staff have been told they will burn in hell, my home has been besieged by anonymous telephone calls, extremist groups have sent out inflammatory messages to their members,” said Conservative MP Nadine Dorries of Mid Bedfordshire. “It got so bad that we had to alert House of Commons security and my constituency police.”

The bill lost 187-108, but Nadine has vowed to reintroduce it:

“Why such extremists think this kind of behaviour will deter me I have no idea. If anything it reinforces my conviction to carry on,” said Mrs. Dorries. “We were not intimidated by the extremists and continue to move forward with the campaign which I have called ‘Abortion Rights and Wrongs – the case for reform of abortion law’.”

Good for her. The UK law is far more rational than the current US law which allows abortion up to the time of birth for any reason. I guess there are some ways in which Europe is ahead of us. [HT: Hot Air]
