In an article for The House magazine, Lord Shinkwin warned that the number of disabled babies being aborted increased by 68% between 2005 and 2015. And he highlighted that 90% of babies diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome are killed in the womb. In Britain, abortions take place before 24 weeks, but disabled children can be aborted up to birth.
