A Scottish pro-life group plans to step up its campaign to put the names of British doctors and NHS staff involved in abortion on the Internet.

The UK Life League is encouraging surfers to send in the names and contact details of anyone involved with family planning or abortion in Britain.

These details are then put on the "Hall of Shame" section of the group's Web site, which states: "Listed hear [sic] are active supporters of child abuse. They must be exposed. The same sort of people would probably have supported slavery, apartheid etc. when it was politically correct to do so."

Jim Dowson, a UK Life League representative, told The Register: "Why shouldn't we have the names? They work for publicly funded bodies."

According to Dowson, the group "doesn't expect anything to happen" to the people listed on the site. It does not, he says, advocate violence.

"The day will come when they will be held to account by the law...We want to see the glare of publicity on them," he said.

The online naming and shaming is part of a wider campaign - which will be the biggest to date from the UK Life League.

It will involve street protests in Liverpool, Birmingham and London, and demonstrations outside abortion clinics, where "sidewalk councillors" will give out anti-abortion information.

The UK Life League also plans to create its own political party ready for the 2003 Scottish Parliament elections.

Dowson added that the group was not connected with the Nuremberg Files, a US Website listing the names of "baby butchers". Eight doctors named on this site have been killed by anti-abortionists. ®
