New Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he supports a reduction in the time limit for women to have abortions from 24 to 12 weeks.
Speaking to The Times, he said he had reached his view based on evidence, not his religious belief.
He said: "I'm not someone who thinks that abortion should be made illegal.Mr Hunt supported lowering the abortion limit to 12 weeks in a free vote in Parliament in 2008. So theres nothing new here
"Everyone looks at the evidence and comes to a view about when that moment is, and my own view is that 12 weeks is the right point for it."
One wonders how many women do not realise they are pregnant even after 12 weeks considering the recent story of soldier that a British Soldier solder serving in Afghanistan who was not aware she was pregnant and only consulted doctors on the day that she went into labour.they may be a few.
And it seems that some serious abnormalities do not appear until 18 weeks.
I'm a single male who has never had any children and so I'm not really qualified to comment on whether women should have an Abortion but I always have supported their right to choose.
It is not a form of contraception but an agonizing choice and to depict those who have made this decision as morally wrong is disgraceful.
Hunt's proposal will put women back it the arms of Back street abortionist otr do untold damage to their mental health .
What we need is to increase support force pregnant women and lok at the Quality of Life . It is appalling that we are still considering forcing Women to carry an unwanted pregnancy to full term when the likes of Jeremy Hunt and myself will never have to make the choice.
