The Abortion (Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, and Clubfoot) Bill

The Abortion (Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, and Clubfoot) Bill. 

 

I understand this Bill seeks to revise the Abortion Act 1967, excluding cleft lip, cleft palate and 

clubfoot as ‘qualifying physical abnormalities for the purposes’ of abortion. 

 

It is my understanding that the Second reading of the Abortion (Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, and Clubfoot) Bill will take place on 10 July and subject to seeing the drafted legislation I would support the Bill progressing into its committee stage.
