Myths and Misconceptions about the British Abortion Law
July 2012

'Myths and Misconceptions about the British Abortion Law: a meeting about recent events and debates' was held on Wednesday 27th June 2012, at The Medical Society of London. The aim of this event was to respond to, and discuss, the problems of ways that the laws regulating abortion provision in Britain, and the practices of staff working in abortion provision, have been recently misrepresented in public debates.

The opening remarks were given by a panel of specialists in the abortion law: Sally Sheldon, Professor of Law, University of Kent; Emily Jackson, Professor of Law, London School of Economics; and Dorothy Flower, Solicitor, Partner RPC. Ellie Lee, Reader in Social Policy at the University of Kent and Co-ordinator of Pro Choice Forum was in the Chair.
