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”

    We had our children late in life as a result we were given Chorionic Villae sampling to detect genetic abnormalities. one side effect of this was that at 20 weeks gestation we knew what colour to paint the nursery, Under the laws in BC at that time we would have had two weeks to get a no questions asked abortion. Obviuosly we didn’t, but this is just to illustrate that selective abortion on sex has been available for at least 25 years. And a huge proportion of The lower mainlands population is now comprised of cultures where males have value and little girls do not.

      … and they may be getting genetic abnormality screening because it’s a first cousin marriage?

        Back in the day Chorionic Villae was considered a moderate risk so it would not be done unless there were increased risks for genetic flaws like in our case age.. or yes incest.

    ”prosecution was not in the public interest.”

    Same as the Rotterham case, 1400 girls raped but prosecution not in the public interest.
    My question is, who is the public, it’s for sure not the 1400 raped girls or the female fetus.
