Abortion debate timing anger

22nd October 2008

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill - which allows experiments on hybrid human-animal embryos - has cleared its Commons stages.

Despite a rebellion by 16 Labour MPs and a row about the lack of debate on reforming abortion laws the bill will now go to the Lords. The vote was on various issues including the growing of "hybrid embryos" for stem cells but some MPs were annoyed that no time was allowed to debate other issues such as the creation of "saviour siblings."
