In England and Wales, the offence is created by section 1(1) of the Infant Life (Preservation) Act 1929:
(1) Subject as hereinafter in this subsection provided, any person who, with intent to destroy the life of a child capable of being born alive, by any wilful act causes a child to die before it has an existence independent of its mother, shall be guilty of felony, to wit, of child destruction, and shall be liable on conviction thereof on indictment to penal servitude for life:
Provided that no person shall be found guilty of an offence under this section unless it is proved that the act which caused the death of the child was not done in good faith for the purpose only of preserving the life of the mother.
(2) For the purposes of this Act, evidence that a woman had at any material time been pregnant for a period of twenty-eight weeks or more shall be primâ facie proof that she was at that time pregnant of a child capable of being born alive.
According to British law it stops being an "embryo" at around 24 weeks. Do you want to reconsider your off-hand attitude toward the life of this person so you can join that of the overwhelming majority of you countrymen? Countrymen who enacted this abortion law:
Section 1(1) of the Abortion Act 1967
In England and Wales and Scotland, section 1(1) of the Abortion Act 1967 now reads:
Subject to the provisions of this section, a person shall not be guilty of an offence under the law relating to abortion when a pregnancy is terminated by a registered medical practitioner if two registered medical practitioners are of the opinion, formed in good faith -
(a) that the pregnancy has not exceeded its twenty-fourth week and that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman or any existing children of her family; or
(b) that the termination of the pregnancy is necessary to prevent grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman; or
(c) that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk to the life of the pregnant woman, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated
(d) that there is a substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped.
Rather than cut and paste the rest of it I will simply go on to say that a woman in the UK does not have a "right" to an abortion. She has the prerogative to ask for one and two doctors may choose to allow her to have it. Or not. It is also an offense for her to attempt to abort herself. Late term abortions are strictly controlled in the UK and absolutely NOT available on demand.
Many US states have more liberal abortion laws than the UK does.
