The BBC has named human rights campaigner and pro-life advocate Heidi Crowter among its ‘100 Women of 2022’.
Heidi has worked tirelessly in recent years to challenge England’s discriminatory abortion law which permits abortion up to 24 weeks, but allows unborn babies with a disability, including babies with Down’s syndrome to be aborted up to birth.
It’s nice to see the BBC acknowledging the tremendous work she has been doing. Heidi, who herself has Down’s syndrome, is involved in an ongoing legal challenge to the abortion law in the UK. At present, with her legal representatives, she is considering seeking permission for her case against the UK government to be taken to the Supreme Court.
Heidi is in very good company in receiving recognition from the BBC for her work! In 2014, Cora Sherlock was named by the BBC as one of its “100 inspiring and influential women from around the world” for her committed pro-life advocacy.
