The Abortion (Guernsey) (Amendment) Law, 2021

Share this page

Thursday 22 July 2021

Last week the States of Deliberation passed the Abortion (Guernsey) (Amendment) Law, 2021.

The main changes to the Law will remove the legal requirement for consultation with two doctors in order to access abortion care, increase the amount of time a woman has to decide whether or not she wishes to continue with her pregnancy and enable early medical abortions to be completed in the woman's home.

While these changes have been agreed, they will not come into force until the new Law has received Royal Assent from The Privy Council. This is a requirement for all new primary legislation passed in the Bailiwick of Guernsey and Jersey. Once this process is complete, and the new law has effect, the Committee for Health & Social Care will ensure this information is widely circulated.

Until that time, abortion care continues to be available through your General Practitioner.
