Abortion on demand

17th October 2007

A survey carried out by the Marie Stopes organisation has indicated that more than half of GPs believe the agreement of one just doctor should be enough for an abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy.

At present a woman must persuade two doctors that carrying on with the pregnancy is a health risk. The Marie Stopes survey of 1,000 GPs also showed two-thirds wanted the current 24-week time limit for abortion to be reduced, though the government say there are no plans to change the law on abortion.
