Abortion law will leave out any reference to trans men

The bill to legalise abortion will not include a reference to pregnant transgender men.
It is understood that Simon Harris, the health minister, supports trans men having the same reproductive rights as women but has received legal advice that mentioning them in the law would have unintended consequences. It is believed that it could open the risk of transgender people losing other rights that they may be entitled to under other laws.
