CALM welcomes abortion consultation

A campaign group that wants to see changes to the Island's abortion laws says it's delighted a public consultation on the Abortion Reform Bill is now underway.

The draft of Ramsey MHK Alex Allinson's Private Members Bill was published yesterday, with feedback being invited from the Manx public.

The Campaign for Abortion Law Modernisation, which wants to see abortions available to all women on the Island, has welcomed the emphasis on the need for counselling within the proposed new laws.

CALM also says responding to the consultation will ensure the legislation meets the needs of the Island's women.

Full details of the Bill and public consultation can be found on the Government's website.
