UK Doctor suspended following sex selection abortion sting

We reported last month on the issue of UK doctors turning a blind eye to sex selection abortion

The Daily Mail report March 12th that one of the doctors has already been suspended by the Medical Council and that it is likely that the council will also suspend the others and take away their licence to practice. The folowing is an extract from the Daily Mail article
A doctor who altered paperwork to conceal the fact he was agreeing to an abortion because of the baby's gender has been suspended by the General Medical Council.
 Dr Raj Mohan was filmed at the Calthorpe Clinic in Edgbaston, Birmingham agreeing to a mother's request to abort her baby because she didn't want a girl.
In the video, filmed as part of an undercover investigation, the woman asked him: 'Can we put down a different reason?'
Dr Mohan tells her that to record that she didn't want a girl was 'not a good reason anytime' for an abortion, before saying: 'I'll put down too young for pregnancy, yeah?'
The GMC's Interim Orders Panel has now suspended Dr Mohan from practising pending a full investigation of his actions, recorded by undercover reporters for The Daily Telegraph.
Medics Dr Prabha Sivaraman and Miss Claudine Domoney have also been told by the panel that they 'must not authorise any termination of pregnancy or carry out any termination of pregnancy work, either by consultation or surgery', the Telegraph reports today.
It is now likely that all will face GMC Fitness to Practise panels which could strip of their right to work as a doctor after the newspaper filmed them agreeing to abort foetuses because they were the 'wrong' gender.
According to the 1967 Abortion Act, doctors are allowed to carry out terminations if they think there is a risk to the mother's physical or mental health.
However, to abort a foetus solely on the basis of gender is illegal and offenders risk a possible prison sentence. 

The way the abortion industry flourishes is by dehumanising the unborn baby and all the major newspapers fall into the trap (many willingly) as in this extract from the Daily Mail article in general and the last sentence in particular. This is done by referring to the the "termination of a pregnancy" or "abortion of a foetus" rather than the termination of the life of a baby or aborting a baby. This is the so called acceptable language that is designed to focus on anything but the humanity of the unborn baby and it needs to be tackled continuously.
