Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned at the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn the longstanding Roe v Wade decision that provided federal protection for the right for women to choose an abortion and maintain the safety and autonomy of their bodies; fears that consequent restrictions across swathes of the US will harm millions of women and that the loss of safe services will lead to many unnecessary deaths; sends solidarity and support to the majority of the US population who oppose this appalling decision; and reaffirms the right for women in the UK to access safe, legal abortion procedures.
