bpas comment on abortion counselling consultation
Published 31 October 2012
Current abortion counselling arrangements serve women well, and so bpas is pleased to see the government has dropped its plans to unnecessarily overhaul services. Calls to do so had been driven by a handful of MPs with an anti-abortion agenda who wished to create barriers in women's access to care. bpas hopes that government policy can now focus on efforts to support women trying to prevent pregnancy, and ensure the highest quality care for those who do need abortion services.
