In UK, Discrimination Is Banned Everywhere Except the Womb

The United Kingdom’s multitude of “equality” provisions will protect nearly anyone born with a disability, although it is perfectly legal to prevent disabled people from being born, up to the point of birth (simply because they have a disability).

The U.K.’s abortion law is therefore an example of the most blatant and basic form of discrimination imaginable.

In the past decade, Europe has emphatically embraced so-called “equality” laws. Nowhere is this truer than in the U.K.

In fact, the U.K.’s Equality Act of 2010 consolidated a remarkable 116 separate pieces of legislation into a single act. And with this act have come equality impact assessments, equality questionnaires, equality and diversity policies, and an Equality Commission and Government Equalities Office to monitor it all.

Under the law, discrimination is unlawful on nine different grounds – including disability. But the tragic irony is that, in the pursuit of eradicating discrimination from society, one significant area was conveniently overlooked – it is still lawful through abortion to stop certain people from entering society.
