S5W-16701: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 16 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists' statement that “abortion services should be regulated; however, abortion - for women, doctors and other healthcare professionals - should be treated as a medical, rather than a criminal issue.”

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 31 May 2018

The Scottish Government believes all women should have access to abortion services as part of routine care, and available free from stigma.
