Under current UK law, abortion rules differ depending on whether the baby has been diagnosed with a disability, including Down’s syndrome.
Babies can be aborted at any time right up to the point of birth on grounds of disability, whereas babies can only be aborted up to 24 weeks of pregnancy if the termination is for social or economic reasons.
Crowter said, ‘I am taking my case all the way to the ECHR at Strasbourg because it is downright discrimination that people with disabilities are treated differently.
‘In 2023, we live in a society where disabled people are valued equally after birth but not in the womb. Our law singles out babies with disabilities.’
