thank you for your support

We welcome the government’s announcement that it is supportive of the spirit of the ‘independent abortion counselling’ amendments and that it intends to bring forward proposals for regulations. We look forward to continuing to work with government to secure proper investigation of all the relevant issues and to ensuring that women considering abortion are provided with the opportunity to access the information, advice and counselling that they deserve. Please check back for further developments.

Commenting on today’s parliamentary debate, a spokesperson for Right to Know said:

“We are pleased that the campaign has opened up the debate on the quality of care and support offered to women considering abortion and are delighted that that debate is now set to continue. There is widespread public support for the principle of independent counselling so we welcome the announcement of a full consultation on this matter. We look forward to continuing to work with government to secure proper investigation of all the relevant issues and to ensuring that women considering abortion are provided with the opportunity to access the information, advice and counselling that they deserve.”

The Right to Know Campaign was formed to support an amendment to the Health and Social Care Bill to ensure that women considering an abortion would be guaranteed access to independent information and advice from someone who had no vested financial interest in the outcome of their decision. We are pleased that the subject of independent abortion counselling is now to be subject to a government consultation.
