  • 17:08 Story (1 links): MPs vote to make sex selection abortion illegal

    Story View links

    MPs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of making sex selection abortion illegal.

    They voted 181 – 1 in a Ten Minute Rule Motion brought forward by Fiona Bruce and a cross-party alliance of MPs in an attempt to end uncertainty around the procedure. It will now have a second reading in January.

    Ms Bruce told the Commons: "It is a shame that this clarification is needed. Successive health minsters and even the Prime Minister have been very clear they state that abortion for reasons of gender alone is illegal. The Prime Minister has described the practice as appalling but they are being ignored."

    Earlier this year, doctors were not charged when they were caught on camera discussing to arrange the abortion of baby girls, based on their gender.
