Skydiving for Life

A British medical student has completed a parachute jump to raise awareness about the dangers facing the unborn in the UK and the pressure being placed on doctors who oppose abortion. Siobhan Fearon, 19, jumped from 14,000 feet and was in freefall for 50 seconds. She said:
I think it is vital that society understands and appreciates the sanctity of every human life whether it is a developing child in the womb or somebody approaching the end of their life. When I graduate and become a doctor I am hoping to be able to use my skills to help save lives. I think abortion is never the answer and hope that one day, as a doctor, I will be able to help women to make the right decision.
