Unborn babies now may be aborted up to birth on the British Isle of Man.

The region’s parliament recently approved a new law allowing abortions up to 14 weeks for any reason and up to birth for babies with “serious” disabilities, according to The Telegraph.

It makes the Isle of Man the first place on the British Isles to completely decriminalize abortions, the report states.

One of the most radically pro-abortion laws in the world, the new legislation also allows midwives and pharmacists to give women dangerous abortion drugs.

Here’s more from the report:

Under the new legislation, the Isle of Man government will also have a legal obligation to offer women impartial counselling, and will include provision for “buffer zones” that will prevent protests around NHS premises and any premises where abortion services take place, including counselling. A recent review by Westminster concluded that buffer zones were not necessary in England, Scotland, and Wales.

The Abortion Reform Bill was passed late last year with unanimous support my members of the House of Keys (the parliament of the Isle of Man) and has now received royal assent.

Previously, unborn babies were protected from abortion in most cases on the Isle of Man, according to the BBC. Abortions were allowed for rape and threats to the mother’s health.

The news comes after Ireland also caved into abortion activists’ pressure and legalized the killing of unborn babies. The only place in the British Isles where unborn babies still are protected is Northern Ireland, but its lawmakers are under intense pressure to legalize abortion on demand there as well.
