Thank you for the invitation to the APPG Pro-Life event on foetal viability and the case for reducing the abortion time limit. I am unable to attend the event due to other Parliamentary commitments.
In response to a recent question in Parliament, my colleague Maggie Throup MP (Minister for Public Health) stated whilst that officials keep evidence on foetal viability under review, there is currently no clear consensus from the medical profession that the age of viability has reduced below 24 weeks.
Ultimately, it is a question for Parliament whether to propose any changes to the law on abortion such as gestational time limits.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
