launch of woman's "right to know" campaign




News Weekly, June 11, 2011

Private abortion-providers would be barred from providing counselling to women, under legislation being proposed by two British members of parliament.

Nadine Dorries MP (Conservative) and the Rt Hon. Frank Field MP (Labour), a former minister in Tony Blair’s government, recently put forward an amendment to a health and social care bill, currently before Britain’s House of Commons.

The amendment would guarantee that women considering abortion would have access to independent pregnancy counselling. This would remove the financial conflict where private abortion clinics provide both counselling and abortions to Britain’s National Health Service.

In 2009, the NHS outsourced more than 100,000 abortions to private operators, worth an estimated £60 million (AUD$92 million).

Nadine Dorries MP, said: “When vulnerable women in a crisis pregnancy situation consult a GP about an abortion, many are referred on to a private clinic for counselling, the very same clinic paid to carry out terminations. Our amendment aims to ensure that all women seeking an abortion will be offered independent advice, separate from a private provider which would carry out an abortion.

“Many women find the process of their abortion distressing and have to live with that experience for the rest of their lives. Many women are angry to learn about this financial conflict, particularly if they have suffered as a result of their abortion.”

The UK’s Royal College of Psychiatrists, whose members meet women suffering from their abortion experience, recently consulted widely with its 12,500 members and revised its guidance to recognise a link between abortion and psychological harm.

It has recommended updating abortion information leaflets to include details of the risks of depression.
