New Call to Reduce British Abortion Time Limit

Tory MP Nadine Dorries has said she will publish a new version of her bill to reduce the time limit for abortions. The new version would limit the timescale for terminations to 20 weeks from the current 24 weeks. Ms Dorries' previous proposals to cut the maximum period to 21 weeks were rejected by MPs in October. She said her aim was to cut the number of "barbaric" terminations involving lethal injections.
