There are no current plans to introduce a specific offence of causing death of an unborn child by dangerous driving. We do not believe such an offence is necessary. Dangerous driving is already an offence. If an unborn child is killed but the mother survives, the driver could be charged with causing the mother grievous bodily harm under section 20 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 if they acted recklessly. We have received one petition with 910 signatures about this issue.
