Media Coverage Great Britain Study
New research into the data from the online medical abortion service Women on Web found that many women in Great Britain experience barriers to access including long waiting times, distance to a clinic, work or childcare commitments, privacy concerns and controlling circumstances. Abortion was legalised in Great Britain 50 years ago but is only available in special clinics and hospitals in urban areas. Only by making abortion legal and available through general physicians, nurses, midwives and other widely available healthcare providers as is also supported by the World Heath Organisation, will all women have equal access to abortion services.
