Abortion hotline launched

10th March 2008

The country's first phone line dedicated to women thinking about abortion has launched.

Marie Stopes International has provided the service after a succesful six-month trial. Liz Davies, the agency's UK and western Europe director, said: "The fact that women can now talk to a counsellor outside a clinical environment makes the service more accessible for many, both physically and psychologically."
