Domestic Abuse Bill

 

Thank you for contacting me about abortion and the Domestic Abuse Bill.

A number of MPs have proposed an amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill which seeks to decriminalise abortion so that women who end their own pregnancies, including women who access abortion medication online, are not held criminally responsible. 

This Bill is currently going through the House of Lords and will be subject to amendments but I will take your concerns into consideration when it returns to the Commons.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
