Members of the Royal College of Nursing have “signalled support” for removing criminal sanctions from termination of pregnancy legislation, said the body in the wake of a consultation.

It revealed today that the results of a UK-wide poll of RCN members showed 73.7% of respondents had voted in favour of removing criminal sanctions from legislation relating to abortion.
