Maria Caulfield, the Conservative party’s vice-chair for women, has called for a debate on reducing the 24-week time limit for women to receive legal abortions.
In remarks that drew criticism from Labour, the MP for Lewes said the 1967 Abortion Act – which applies to England, Scotland and Wales – was “one of the most liberal abortion laws in the world”.
