Our View On Mr Rees-Moggs Opinion On Abortion

Whilst NUPAS fully recognises Mr Rees-Moggs personal opinions, MPs should recognise and respect that despite personal opinion, the law states that every woman should have control over her own body and her fertility in relation to whether to continue with a pregnancy or not, as described in the 1967 Abortion Act. This should not be overruled by the opinions of individuals in charge of making parliamentary decisions. Abortion is an individual’s choice, and opinions against it are very often overruled by religious beliefs when a women finds herself in an unplanned situation.

NUPAS continues to advocate the right for women to access safe abortion services and believes that is it a fundamental healthcare right for women wherever they live.
