My daughter is proof that the judge was wrong about 'fatal foetal abnormalities'

'Many parents were deeply distressed at what Justice Horner said: at his description of their babies as undeserving of protection and at having to hear, yet again, more media reports where their children are dehumanised and their lives utterly devalued in order to campaign for abortion'

On Tuesday, along with thousands of parents right across the country, I was horrified to hear that Justice Mark Horner had said that some unborn babies, those he described as having a 'fatal foetal abnormality', were 'doomed' and did not have a 'human life to protect'.

I read his words as I sat with my daughter, Kathleen Rose, who is living with Trisomy 13, a condition often described as a 'fatal foetal abnormality'. We've just celebrated her 9th birthday with balloons, cake, family and friends - just like we have done for all our children. We treasure every day we have with her. She is the heart of our home.
