Anti abortion pamphlet sparks mothers outrage – but what does that s양산출장안마ay about feminism today?
By Hannah Beech
The UK government announced in January that it would introduce a law which would permit doctors to abort terminally ill and disabled babies without any consultation with their parents or other family members. The government was expected to announce the new law in May, but the government delayed the bill until May 19 – making people worry whether the law would actually go ahead. It has taken an hour for the law to become law.
The new bill means that abortions will be able to occur to anyone under 18 with an abortion consent form signed by a physician. But how do these women get the consent form signed, and how does a doctor sign them? We’ll do our best to answer these questions. (Here’s a good primer on the law. We’ll also briefly cover other abortion provisions in the Bill: What is abortion, what is an abortion referral form, and what is a procedure, and how long does an abortion last, and what if I refuse?)

If the woman’s doctor’s refusal falls outside the doctor’s role, the abortion will be stopped without any consultation with her family members, friends, schoolteachers, neighbors, or anyone else the doctor might have contacted. The doctor may also take some action to preserve the child’s life if she is in the end state of fetal viability, so that if the fetus survives it will be in a hospital.
If the doctor also wants to terminate the pregnancy, he or she must submit the consent form to the mother, who then must approve her ab포커 의 신ortion or give written consent to the termination. If the doctor can’t do this, he or she must either consult the nearest doctor (or get approval fr광주출장샵om a family member, friends or a district health committee) or try to arrange another health care procedure, such as an amniocentesis, an intrauterine insemination, or a cesarean section.
The government has not specified a minimum age under which a woman is considered “able” to have an abortion without first obtaining written parental consen
