Forcing Women To Leave Scotland: the Daily Record on Abortion Provision in Scotland

The Abortion Rights Committee Scotland is delighted to welcome excellent coverage of the abortion provision situation in Scotland from Scottish newspaper The Daily Record.

On 23rd June 2015 the Record published their story based on research that found that, despite the UK’s 24-week limit, abortions after 18-20 weeks are typically not provided north of the border. Read the story here.

We were also delighted to read the newspaper’s editorial calling for action to change this situation in Scotland:

Forcing Scottish women to leave the country for abortions they are legally allowed should be unthinkable.
