Long Abstract: A disturbing world in which a religious guru convinces British women they are pregnant by God with a 'miracle baby' was exposed today in a radio investigation. The claims prompted fears of child exploitation and baby trafficking. Both the Church of England and the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology have called on the Metropolitan Police to investigate the claims involving members of one of Britain’s fastest growing Evangelical churches – The Gilbert Deya Ministries. Its head, the self-styled Archbishop Gilbert Deya, pronounces the women worshippers as pregnant 'by Jesus', according to the BBC Radio 4’s Face the Facts investigation. They then travel to Archbishop Deya’s Kenyan homeland where they apparently give birth to babies within days in backstreet clinics in the slums of Nairobi.
