SPUC and Life have launched a joint petition to have Marie Stopes International (MSI) stripped of their licence to perform abortions in the UK.
The joint initiative comes in light of recent scandals and in the wake of a probe which has lifted the lid on the nation’s shameful abortion industry.
Marie Stopes has been subject to recent inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which revealed shocking levels of safety violations putting the lives and health of women at risk. In view of such appalling treatment of women, treatment which is rooted in their callous disregard for unborn children, both SPUC and LIFE are calling on the Secretary of State for Health to withdraw from MSI their licence to carry out abortions.
Last year, the Care Quality Commission uncovered a catalogue of dangerous and illegal practices at private abortion clinics at Marie Stopes International private abortion clinics. The CQC report revealed serious safety failings such as there being no staff trained to assist in anaesthesia, no staff present who could administer medication in cases of haemorrhage, and lack of consent training.
A Daily Mail investigation published on 6th March 2017 further found that MSI has been approving thousands of abortions without meeting women with some discussions lasting as little as 22 seconds.
Read SPUC and Life’s press release on the investigation.
Sign the petition
In view of their appalling treatment of women, and recognising that every abortion takes the life of an unborn baby, Life and SPUC call on the Secretary of State for Health to withdraw from MSI their licence to carry out abortions. Please sign the petition and make your voice heard!
