Women should be able to terminate pregnancies with the approval of a single doctor, says one of the country’s top medical leaders.
Professor Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said abortions should be treated no differently from other medical procedures – including something as simple as removing a bunion.
She called for abortions to be decriminalised and made much more freely available.
