New attack on the right to choose

Issue No. 2296

Tory health secretary Andrew Lansley launched the latest attack on abortion rights last week.

He announced a “special team” to investigate abortion clinics, accusing them of breaking the law.

There is no evidence for his claims, which come in the same week as anti-abortion bigots picketed clinics in London and Brighton and intimidated women entering them.

One anti-abortion group, Life, now sits on the government’s sexual health forum.
