Access To Abortion Services;amdt. Line 3:

EDM number 206A1 in 1996-97, proposed by Elizabeth Peacock on 20/11/1996.

leave out from `believes' to end and add `notes that as many cases (including the Queen Charlotte's Hospital twin case) have demonstrated abortion on demand is widely available in NHS hospitals and in the private sector; notes therefore that it is of no surprise to learn that a major proportion of the public do not know that two doctors are supposedly required to agree an abortion as the second signature is so often simply a formality; notes that the Abortion Act 1967 was never intended to allow abortion on demand (as a woman's choice); and calls on the Government to do all it can to require hospitals and private clinics to stop such pracitces and ensure that the public are better educated about the realities of abortion, the possible physical and psychological effects on the mother, the humanity of the unborn child and the legal requirements for the termination of a pregnancy.'.

This is a ammendment to 206.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
