China and forced abortions

I just discovered this item, although I have known about forced abortions in China and Tibet for some years. I remember attending a SPUC conference where someone gave an address about the situation in Tibet. As far as I can recall, there has never been any British Government statement supporting the women of Tibet - or of China for that matter. I can't imagine the present American government saying anything against the practice. How could it, when it is well-known that there are cases of forced or, at least, pressurized abortion in the U.S.?

  1. How about the 20% of UK abortion clinics which have been found to be breaking the law? For example, UK law requires that 2 doctors agree that an abortion is necessary, but in several clinics doctors have pre-signed forms which simply need the patient name etc to be filled in; no examination - or even reading of the details - necessary.

    Or regarding pressure, how about the fact that pre-abortion counselling is done by people who work in these private clinics? Can the government not see a conflict of interest in this practice? Grrr. Have a blessed Triduum, padre.
