The Court of Appeal will hear a case challenging a U.K. law that allows abortion up to birth for disability after the High Court rejected the case last year.
The High Court in London ruled in September 2021 that the law allowing abortion up to birth for disability was not discriminatory.
The challenge was brought by Heidi Crowter, a 26-year-old woman with Down syndrome, and Máire Lea-Wilson, a 33-year-old mother whose son has Down syndrome.
After last September’s verdict, Crowter and Lea-Wilson appealed the decision, and on March 8, the Court of Appeal announced that it would hear the challenge.
