The consensus over abortion breaks down

In the 40 years since abortion was legalised in the UK, there has been little or no debate on the matter. Unlike our American cousins, we were apparently too "enlightened" to feel the need to argue over such a thing. Finally it seems, the consensus is breaking down.

Charles Moore has written on the subject, and points out that whilst the same hospital tries to keep a premature baby born under 24 weeks alive, it will abort a "foetus" of exactly the same age. Apparently, one life is human, one is not.
