  1. KEVIN RILEY says:

    ABORTION ACT 1967 – FIFTY YEARS OF FAILURE.

    (Author Retired Former Prosecuting Solicitor)

    FACT

    Despite the efforts of all the various pro-life organisations, and the Catholic Hierarchy in the UK (all reliant on money contributed by individuals) nothing effective has been achieved that has had any effect at all on the exponential growth in abortions (now standing at 200,000 very year) that has taken place over that same period.

    The above all being paid for by the tax payer out of the overall NHS Budget (including the 140,000 being carried out “on behalf of the NHS” by BPAS and Marie Stopes.)

    Yet despite the above evidence of failure, all of the above pro-life organisations are intent on only taking the same type of action that has proved to be so ineffective in the past – even though their now exists action that can be taken which is guaranteed to have success.

    THE DISPLAYED IGNORANCE AS TO THE LEGAL REALITIES
    a) The role of MP’s

    Pro-life organisations (including cardinal Nichols on behalf of the Catholic Hierarchy) repeatedly ask their supporters/members to “write to their MPs despite the legal reality that, since the Health and Social Care Act 2012 removed the NHS from democratic control, individual MP’s and indeed Parliament as a whole, now have no power at all over how any medical procedures are delivered by the now “independent and free from democratic control” NHS Trusts including the carrying out of abortions - either directly or via abortion contractors like BPAS and Marie Stopes)

    b) The Role of Theresa May, Jeremy Hunt and the Government as a whole.

    Again as a result of the removal of the NHS from democratic control as described in a0 above, none of the above can force any of the now “independent and free from democratic control” NHS Trusts to deliver medical procedures (including abortions) in any particular way.

    c) The role of the Department of Health.

    Again, as a result of the removal of the NHS from democratic control, the Department of Health has no power over how the now independent and free from democratic control” NHS Trusts deliver “health” services (including abortions) other than “advisory” – once tax payers money has been allocated to each independent NHS Trust, the Department of Health has no power to force the independent NHS Trusts to spend the money allocated in any particular way.

    d) The role of NHS England and it’s various off shoots and subsidiaries (NHS Improvement etc. etc.)

    Again, as in c) above– once tax payers money has been allocated to each independent NHS Trust , neither NHS England or any of it’s various (and seemingly ever increasing) tax payer funded off shoots/subsidiaries have any power to force the independent NHS Trusts to spend the money allocated in any particular way – they can only advise and/or recommend but can do nothing effective if that advice and/or recommendations’ are ignored.

    WHO IS NOW RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROVISON OF ABORTIONS?.

    As a result of the removal of the NHS from democratic control as described above, each of the now 155 independent NHS Trusts are able to make their own independent decisions as to how they individually provide all medical procedures including abortions.

    In light of the above reality, all pro-life organisations should be approaching the Chief Executive of each independent NHS Trust in order to attempt to influence how they individually provide abortions.

    At the moment none of the various pro-life organisations are undertaking this action.

    IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE ARE FURTHER ATTEMPTS AT PERSUASION LIKELY TO HAVE SUCCESS?

    Even if a concerted attempt is made by individual (or all) pro-life organisations to approach each of the 155 plus NHS Trusts, this is unlikely to have any more effect on limiting the availability of abortions (all funded by the tax payer) than any of their previous efforts over the last fifty years.

    THERE IS HOWEVER EFFECTIVE ACTION THAT CAN BE TAKEN.

    To be continued.
