Guernsey abortion time limits to be extended to 24 weeks

July 15, 2021

Abortions up to 24 weeks into a pregnancy will become legal, under agreed reforms to Guernsey law.

Politicians approved extending the existing 12-week limit and removing the 24-week restriction in cases of a significant foetal abnormality.

About 200 pro-choice and anti-abortion activists gathered outside the States of Guernsey on Wednesday.
