The Committee for Health & Social Care has published its proposals to modernise the Abortion (Guernsey) Law, 1997.
The proposals follow a review of scientific evidence and consultation with medical professionals, who overwhelmingly supported change. The full policy letter is available in the downloads section of this page.
If approved, the recommended changes will ensure that:
- Access to abortion is more equitable;
- The Law reflects modern practice; and
- The Law is futureproofed.
There will be a public engagement session on the 11th March from 18:00 - 20:00 at the Performing Arts Centre for people to find out more about the proposals as well as the opportunity to ask questions.
