I heard a fascinating programme on Radio 4 (Case notes with Dr Mark Porter). It gave an historical overview of abortion and then an update on current methods of abortion. It did not cover the ethical or moral issues surrounding abortion but gave a comprehensive view of services available. It also incorporated views of women undergoing abortions which highlihted the personal perspective of such a profound decision.
In a recent research project concerning abortion services in Wales I found that most services adhered to national guidelines (by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), but that some women were not able to choose the method of abortion because of a lack of local services.
I welcome discussion about this issue.
