Abortion counselling vote: CMF response

Published: 7th September 2011

Following the House of Commons debate on the abortion counselling amendment to the Health and Social Care Bill, Philippa Taylor CMF's Head of Public Policy said:

'While we are disappointed at the level of opposition to the aim of the proposed amendment, the heart of this debate has always been the women facing an unplanned pregnancy.

There is little disagreement that counselling is essential, so that every woman is able to come to a genuinely informed choice based on accurate, impartial and comprehensive information on ALL the options open to her.

We welcome Health Minister Anne Milton's commitment to work within the spirit of the amendment to "offer a choice of independent counselling".'
