High Court Orders 13-Year-Old Girl To Have Abortion
At the time of her mental health evaluation she had “set her mind against a termination,” the court heard.
But an expert said allowing her to give birth might be the less-damaging course.
“If the pregnancy were terminated I believe that this would cause considerable harm to this young girl, who would see it as an assault.
"Continuing the pregnancy…may have a less detrimental effect on her given her current circumstances,” the expert said.
The psychiatrist who evaluated her said that, although the teenager would “understand termination and its effect”, she did not have a “full understanding of what the pregnancy would involve.”
He added that the girl’s “unambiguous” hostility towards termination made enforcement of an abortion a bad option.
But Sir James said the girl’s opposition to an abortion had wavered during the hearing.
“It was clearly appropriate for me to supply the necessary consent to enable the termination to proceed,” he said.
Announcing his decision weeks after it was made, Sir James confirmed that the abortion had since taken place.
This is FORCED ABORTION. An innocent unborn child was literally sentenced to death because of his or her mother’s mental capacity and age. This is what we have become. When will we wake up to what is happening all around us? The value of life is becoming meaningless and the implications are horrific and will only worsen with time.
We must take a stand. We must stand for Life – no matter what. What will your legacy be?
