GPs voted yesterday against a motion to reduce the time limit for legal abortions in the UK, about which I had a proper rant last week.

77% of delegates at the British Medical Association\x92s Annual Conference voted against the motion, saying that whilst late abortions were distressing they were sometimes necessary in cases where pregnancy was deleted late or there were medical complications.

I don\x92t think I need mention how pleased I am at this outcome. Now all we need to do is secure our right to abortion on demand\x85 who\x92s up for it?!
