‘This law makes me feel I am better off dead’: UK court hears Down syndrome abortion law challenge

A woman with Down syndrome said on Tuesday that a U.K. law allowing abortion up to birth for disability made her feel that she was “better off dead.” Heidi Crowter, a 26-year-old from Coventry, in central England, made the comment outside the High Court in London on July 6 as she prepared to challenge the law. “Here we are at the High Court to challenge the downright discrimination that allows abortion up to birth for Down’s syndrome,” she said. “This law makes me feel I am better off dead, I know I’m not, but that’s how it makes me feel.”
