Archbishop Peter Smith, Vice President of the Bishops’ Conference made this comment on the Crown Prosecution Service’s decision not to prosecute two doctors who agreed to gender abortions:
 
“Many people are rightly very concerned about the CPS decision not to prosecute in the case of the doctors who were willing to conduct abortion as a means of gender selection, and I welcome the intervention of the Health Secretary.

“Abortion is always an injustice to the child who is unwanted, and sex selection through abortion is just one expression of that injustice.

“The existing law should be enforced, but what is needed above all is a soul searching and honest debate about how our culture and society needs to change if the rights of unborn children are to be protected.”
