BMA watch

    “What must be clear is that decriminalisation does not mean deregulation. The debate today and the BMA’s new policy only relate to whether abortion should or should not be a criminal offence; the policy does not address the broader issue of when and how abortion should be available. The BMA has established policy on these issues which remains unchanged.

    Why do the BMA have to have an established policy on anything? It is entirely up to politicians to decide whether there ought to be a change on any laws, particularly on sensitive issues like abortion. Why should anyone care what their political views are, they are doctors. Surely, not all their members subscribe to such 'policy'.

    Of course, the opening quoted line sets off on the usual misleading vein and false premises. Ultimate deregulation is what the pro-abortion and no exception political camp want and this is them pushing for it from within every institution they can get their hands on. Right now, they want to change the requirement for two doctors to sign a form into just one. Then...

    Same with some teachers Unions, working for decades on shaping the views of the next generation. Down with testing, all they need to know is that the more the State runs public life the better.

    Modern slavery is a violation of fundamental human rights and a criminal offence under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the "Act". It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We also implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains

    The BMA have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, make sure you get that just in case you think they might not.
