CARE Consultant Philippa Taylor talks to UCB about recent updates we have seen concerning the issue of abortion. 

The three issues that Philippa speaks are:

  1. The BMA choosing to support decriminalisation of abortion as part of its formal policy. (you can read our CEO's thoughts on this motion here)
  2. The Court of Appeal ruling in Belfast which ruled that Northern Ireland's laws on abortion are not incompatible with human rights (read our press release on this judgement here)
  3. The Governments decision to announce funding for Northern Irish women to receive free abortions in England (read our press release on the decision here)

CARE's starting point on abortion is that our laws on abortion must always protect the most vulnerable, protecting the dignity and rights of both the mother and the unborn child.
