    LONDON — The High Court in London rejected on Thursday a landmark challenge to a U.K. law allowing abortion up to birth for disability.

    In its Sept. 23 ruling, the court declared that a law allowing abortion up to birth for disability was not discriminatory.


    The challenge was brought by Heidi Crowter, a woman with Down syndrome, and Máire Lea-Wilson, a mother whose son has Down syndrome.

    Speaking after the verdict, Crowter, a 26-year-old from Coventry, in central England, said: “I‘m really upset not to win, but the fight is not over. The judges might not think it discriminates against me but I’m telling you that I do feel discriminated against.”

    If the baby has a disability, including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot, abortion in the U.K. is legal up to birth.

    This is so wrong! :( :mad:
