They did work, the second link was the start of a public debate that took place throught the media here and on the "street", then 2 free debate's took place in the commons,a lot of myths were debunked, the result, the 24wk rule stood! from memory 385 MPs against the 75 MPs voted for the reduction of 24 wks rule

To prevent me from controlling my own bloodline, are you willing to stop me with force ? If so, and I fight to the last, the best you have (from your viewpoint) is trading one murder for another. (And thats only if by some miracle I don't take a few down with me.)

Britain thankfully has a lot tougher restrictions on all abortions than some states in the US seem to.
