Wheelchair user barred from presenting petition on infanticide to Royal College of Ob/Gyn..

....because she needed someone to push her wheelchair and only one person is allowed, according to RCOG, into its London headquarters.

"The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) London, today refused to let wheelchair-user Alison Davis present a petition on the infanticide of disabled babies. Officials told Ms. Davis, leader of the No Less Human disability rights group, that she could not come in because she would need someone to push her wheelchair, and the RCOG would only let one person into its London headquarters.

Alison Davis, who has spina bifida, said: “It would be comical if it weren't also tragic that the RCOG, which has asked for a debate on the killing of babies with disabilities such as spina bifida, won't let me, a disabled person, hand over our petition which has some 28,000 signatures. Neither I nor my career is a threat to anyone.”

Nonsense. Utter blithering nonsense.

That's the RCOG for you. They want to kill you because you're disabled. And they show their contempt for disabled people by making sure you can't even enter their building to protest. Fascism is clearly alive in Britain today
