Head of abortion clinic chain: Fetal pictures make us “apologetic”

A pro-lifer who infiltrated an abortion conference quoted Ann Furedi, head of the largest chain of abortion clinics in England. She is CEO of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, which provides about one quarter of all British abortions and specializes in late-term abortion :

Having to contend with “all those Lennart Nilsson photos of a 17 week-old fetus sucking its thumb,” has made abortion activists like us “necessarily a little bit apologetic. It’s not surprising that a lot of young people are not enthusiastic about abortion. They’re not enthusiastic about killing unborn babies….

For far too long, said Furendi, the abortion movement has let religious anti-choice extremists dictate the agenda. But now the time is ripe to claim that “abortion is right.”……

“We need to claim the moral high ground. We cannot have equality if we are constantly victims of our own fertility. A woman is not just a vehicle for pregnancy. I respect human life but there are elements of human life that make us people…personal autonomy, decision-making…bodily integrity. It is morally reprehensible to deny this capacity for choice and decision making.”…

What’s more, [Furedi] went on, it hasn’t helped that “most women who come to our clinics are there because they are in personal need, not because they are pro-choice.”
