24 – 25 October 2017 at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London
To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act, bpas are pleased to be collaborating with the Centre for Health, Law and Society and the Universities of Kent and Leeds to present this conference, which will be held at the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and sponsored by the Wellcome Trust.
The 1967 Abortion Act was a huge breakthrough for the pro-choice movement and indeed for women's rights, achieved after over thirty years of tireless campaigning by the Abortion Law Reform Association. And yet the Act was, and remains, embedded in the framework of Victorian-era criminal law, and entwined with a medical model that bears little relevance to today's clinical practices.
The conference will address a range of clinical-based, social, political and historical issues, bringing together academics, policy makers, politicians, campaigners, and healthcare professionals. For tickets and more information please click here.
