Talk:Abortion Act 1967

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


May I suggest that the description of abortion, in the first paragraph, as 'medical aid' is not neutral as it appears to be a positive description. May I suggest simply replaking it with the word 'abortions'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:12, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I have used the term "medicalizing practises" instead. Is this acceptable to you? Road Wizard (talk) 07:01, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

OAPA 1861[edit]

The following provisions of the 1967 Act had been set out in the Article on the Offences Against the Person Act 1861:

"when a pregnancy is terminated by a registered medical practitioner if two registered practitioners are of the opinion, formed in good faith..." that one of four sets of circumstances apply, notably s.1(1)(d): "...that there is a substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped."

I have moved them here because they do not really belong there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:44, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


In the second paragraph there is a reference to the ROCG committee. Is this a misspelling of RCOG (Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists)?
