Fiona Bruce is MP for Congleton.
On Tuesday 4th November I will present the Abortion (Sex-Selection) Ten Minute Rule Bill to Parliament on behalf of a number of MPs from all sides of the House.
The legal argument against sex-selective abortion runs something like this. The sex of an unborn child is not one of the reasons for an abortion outlined in the 1967 Abortion Act. As abortion is only permissible in UK law where the reason for the procedure meets the criteria of the Act, sex-selective abortion is therefore illegal.
