Birmingham doctor to be prosecuted over ‘gender-selective’ abortion allegation in rare private prosecution

A pro-life campaigner has won the right to prosecute a Birmingham doctor accused of offering a gender-selective abortion.

Aisling Hubert, backed by a Christian group, launched the rare private action against Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan after the CPS decided a prosecution was not in the public interest.

The medic, who used to work at the Calthorpe Clinic in Edgbaston, is accused of offering a woman a termination on the grounds that she was pregnant with a girl.

The alleged offer was filmed as part of a national newsaper’s investigation into the issue.

“Not in the public interest” translates as “We’re afraid, very afraid we may disrupt community cohesion”
