Anti-abortion Movement in U.K.

The Telegraph on a movement to greater restrictions on abortion: "For the first time in many years, the ethics of abortion are back in the headlines. There is renewed pressure for a tightening of the current British law, which allows the termination of a pregnancy up to 24 weeks. But it is coming from an unexpected direction: politicians and public figures who still support, with reservations, what the pro-abortion lobby calls 'a woman's right to choose'.

In an interview published today, Michael Howard calls for the legal limit to be cut to 20 weeks; he used to support a limit of 22 weeks. The difference, though small in terms of time, would substantially reduce the number of abortions in this country."
