Petition Remove Abortions From The NHS
An innocent life is being taken whenever an abortion is performed. As someone who pays taxes to a great health service, I want to see this procedure removed from the NHS.
Science agrees that human development begins at conception:
“Human development begins after the union of male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization (conception).”[Moore, Keith L. Essentials of Human Embryology. Toronto: B.C. Decker Inc, 1988, p.2]
As the fertilized embryo has all the genetic components of an individual human they should receive the same rights as born humans. The right to life is a fundamental cornerstone to western society as we know it and abortions stand in direct opposition to that right.
