A mother who caused a nation-wide controversy when she had a healthy twin aborted claiming she was hard up and incapable of handling two children was revealed yesterday as a middle-class professional with a company director husband. The couple, who already have a family, live in a fashionable part of London, according to the Daily Express. The case of 'Miss B' prompted a national outcry earlier this month when gynaecologist Professor Phillip Bennett revealed the case of selective abortion. The case became a cause celebre for pro-life campaigners who raised GBP80,000 (HK$952,800) in the hope the woman would call off the operation. Other groups offered accommodation and help raising the children. The campaign came to an end when the hospital involved, Queen Charlotte's in west London, revealed the abortion had taken place several weeks earlier. Professor Bennett said the woman involved was 28 with one child and she could not afford two more. But yesterday's report alleges that the mother's background is markedly different. It said she is a well-educated woman from a good family. Her husband, to whom she has been married for some years, is the father of her children. Although she is pregnant and carrying the terminated foetus, she is continuing to work. She is about to take maternity leave from her job. Contacted by a reporter, the woman said: 'I know what the story is about - the woman who was expecting twins. But I don't know how you have got my name or how you found me. I am married and we are certainly not impoverished - far from it.' Asked if she was expecting twins, the woman would only speak in the present tense, the paper reported, saying: 'I am certainly not expecting twins. I telephoned the hospital this morning and we have decided to do exactly what they told us to do.' Within hours of the conversation on Tuesday, Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust obtained a High Court injunction restraining the Express from identifying her.
