leave out from `believes' to end and add `notes that as many cases (including the Queen Charlotte's Hospital twin case) have demonstrated abortion on demand is widely available in NHS hospitals and in the private sector; notes therefore that it is of no surprise to learn that a major proportion of the public do not know that two doctors are supposedly required to agree an abortion as the second signature is so often simply a formality; notes that the Abortion Act 1967 was never intended to allow abortion on demand (as a woman's choice); and calls on the Government to do all it can to require hospitals and private clinics to stop such pracitces and ensure that the public are better educated about the realities of abortion, the possible physical and psychological effects on the mother, the humanity of the unborn child and the legal requirements for the termination of a pregnancy.'.
That this House notes that a Mori poll commissioned by Marie Stopes International and the National Abortion Campaign has found that 60 per cent. of the British public are unaware that the permission of two doctors is required to make an abortion legal; believes that the result of the poll indicates a need for the public, and especially women seeking termination of a pregnancy, to be informed of the procedures involved; further believes that if women seeking termination are unaware of the legal requirements of the Abortion Act 1967, this may unnecessarily delay their access to abortion services and lead to more terminations after 12 weeks; and calls upon the Government to do all it can to ensure the public are better educated about the legal requirements for termination of pregnancy.
