A London clergywoman* is going after the police in Britain for failing to prosecute abortion doctors:
A clergywoman won the right Monday to take legal action against a police chief for failing to prosecute doctors who performed a late-term abortion of a fetus with a cleft lip and palate.
British law allows abortions after 24 weeks only if the child suffers a serious handicap. The Rev. Joanna Jepson, who has a deformed jaw, argued that facial deformity doesn't constitute such a handicap.
May she be successful.
