Abortionist Best Counsellors

In the UK, a proposal to stop abortion providers from also giving counselling to woman considering an abortion was rejected in the UK Parliament. MPs voted by 368 votes to 118 against the amendment to the Health and Social Care Bill to offer woman the option of receiving independent counselling. It would have meant abortion providers such as Marie Topes would no longer have been allowed to offer abortion counselling.
