English Doctors May Call for Early-Stage Abortion to Require only One Medical Opinion

This week English Doctors will most likely vote on two motions being made at the Medical Association’s annual representative meeting that would make it simpler for women in early stages of pregnancy to seek an abortion. Current UK law requires that two doctors must agree before termination can take place, except in emergencies.  It is being proposed that doctors support a new law that would require only one doctor’s signature in the first trimester of pregnancy.
