Court rules Aisling Hubert must pay huge costs
Thank you for praying for Aisling ahead of her costs hearing.
On Tuesday (17 January) Aisling went to court to challenge £36,000 of the costs that were awarded against her after she tried to bring two 'gender-abortion' doctors to justice.
The judge said he could not amend or reduce the costs. Instead a settlement was reached for the amount Aisling has to pay. She now has until 18 August to pay the agreed amount.
The terms of the settlement are confidential due to the wishes of the parties other than Aisling.
Aisling says that she will continue to fight for justice for the most vulnerable in society, despite having to pay huge legal costs.
'The fight is not over'
We must raise the funds to pay these costs for Aisling, and continue the fight against 'gender-abortion'.
"These little girls' lives are infinitely valuable, so in a sense the costs mean nothing.
"This case has shown that doctors are willing to kill innocent girls not just abroad, but right here in the UK, and do it for money. Yet nobody is prosecuting them.
"The costs awarded against me are unjust, but I hope to raise the funds and continue to stand up for preborn girls.
"I'm glad that this case has now reached its end but the fight is not over. I will continue to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society."
We've come a long way
Tuesday's settlement means that a two year legal battle has now finished. In this time:
- The GMC suspended one of the doctors, Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan, who was filmed offering abortion because the baby was a girl
- Dr Rajmohan said that he had "brought disgrace to the [medical] profession, public trust and also let down my colleagues, at the same time bringing disrepute to my employing trust."
- A ComRes poll commissioned by Christian Concern showed that 84% of British adults support the prosecution of doctors who practise 'gender-abortion'
- Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt called for urgent guidance on 'gender-abortion'
- The Department of Health investigated the practice of 'gender-abortion'
- 50 MPs signed a letter calling for a review of the CPS's failure to prosecute the two doctors involved
- 'Gender-abortion' has been exposed in the media, as Aisling's story has received press coverage and media interest
- Aisling has had opportunities to speak up for preborn children, particularly girls, on national media
But we've got a long way to go
Despite these victories, there is a long way to go:
- No one has yet been prosecuted for 'gender-abortion', even though the Crown Prosecution Service had enough evidence to prosecute Dr Sivaraman and Dr Rajmohan
- MPs rejected an explicit ban on 'gender-abortion' after strong opposition from the pro-abortion lobby
- We must help Aisling raise funds to pay the huge and unjust legal costs awarded against her
- 200,000 babies are still killed every year by abortion doctors in the United Kingdom.
We need to work together to end this horrific practice and help mothers and fathers who feel it is their only option.
This is our battle.
Thank you for standing with Aisling. We long to see an end to 'gender-abortion'. But we all need to work together in order to make an impact.
Will you help us raise the funds to pay Aisling's costs?
