Plea for Life

Please sign this petition to reduce the legal gestational age for abortion from 24 weeks to 16 weeks :

It reads:

"Given the advances in medical science over the past two decades, most babies now born after 24 weeks gestation are completely viable. They also have a fully developed central nervous system and feel pain in just the same way as a baby born at full term.
It is therefore unspeakably cruel for foetuses who have reached this gestational age to have their lives terminated by abortion."
Of course we should be petitioning for a zero tolerance of the genocide in the womb - but small steps forward are better than none.
