David Ford, “fatal” foetal abnormality is not a medical term

Mr.Ford, when you appeared on the BBC NI programme called The View on 3rd December last, did you not listen to Prof. Jim Dornan who made it clear that he was not happy with the term “fatal” foetal abnormality and further stated that “fatal” foetal abnormality is not a medical term.

We ask the question because you continue to speak of “fatal” foetal abnormality and you did so as recently as today on the radio.

Why do you persist in your use of this inaccurate term when, according to Prof. Dornan, the accurate medical term is foetal abnormality?

PS  David Ford is the Northern Ireland Justice Minister
