Scotland’s most senior doctor has been given three weeks to stop allowing women to take the abortion pill at home or face legal action.
Lawyers acting for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Scotland have written to Dr Catherine Calderwood, the country’s chief medical officer, with the ultimatum and given her until January 5 to comply.
