England: midwives' group urges end to abortion restrictions
May 16, 2016
The Royal College of Midwives, the largest union of midwives in Britain, has called for an end to legal restrictions on late-term abortions.
Reacting to a case in which a young woman was jailed for seeking to abort her own child during the eighth month of her pregnancy, the Royal College joined abortion providers in a campaign to end the existing ban on abortions after the 24th week of pregnancy.

Wow, this isn't just a bunch of guys sitting in front of a computer; these are the women who actually handle babies! Perhaps the women in charge of this organization are out of touch and have been busy pushing papers rather than delivering babies.
