One woman a week in Britain is unable to get access to specialist abortion care because of a lack of capacity in the NHS, leaving them with no legal option but to give birth, a report has warned.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (Bpas) said “service pressures” mean women with complex medical needs are having their lives put at risk waiting for abortion care.
