Motion text

That this House welcomes the appointment of Life UK to the Department of Health's Independent Advisory Group on Sexual Health and HIV; notes it is the first group of any kind not in favour of abortion on demand to be given such a placement; further notes the Department's comment that the appointment was made to provide balance; is concerned however that all of the 10 remaining groups represented support or provide contraceptives, the morning after pill and abortions to underage children without parental knowledge or consent; further notes that 10 groups to one could not reasonably be described as providing a balance; and calls on the Government to ignore opposition to this appointment and to consider increasing the representation from other pro-life groups in order to achieve a real balance of opinion.
