MLC welcomes Abortion Reform Bill progress

Almost 80 amendments made in LegCo

The MLC who's steered the Abortion Reform Bill through the Legislative Council says he's pleased with its progress.

Tynwald's upper chamber yesterday completed its scrutiny of the bill, as it dealt with the clauses stage and third reading in the same sitting.

Almost 80 amendments - mostly for legal clarification - were made.

The document is now due to be considered by the House of Keys at a later date.

Bill Henderson MLC says he's happy with what's been done, and agrees with pro-choice group CALM that yesterday was a good day for women in the Isle of Man.
