Prime Minister Must Not Support Decriminalising Abortion
We call on the Prime Minister not to support decriminalising abortion.
Petition Closing Date: Friday 27 April 2018
What decriminalising abortion means
- Decriminalising abortion will strip from unborn children any remaining effective legal protection from abortion. The Abortion Act 1967 is a bad law but keeping abortion within the law offers some safeguards for mothers and their unborn babies.
- Abortion should remain a criminal offence if performed outside the terms of the 1967 Abortion Act, in order to protect women from Britain's abortionists.
- Decriminalising abortion would mean vulnerable pregnant women buying online abortion pills and taking them with no medical supervision. It will mean abortion up to birth for any reason.
