News in Brief

  • Abortion motion

    Christian Concern

    MP Diana Johnson introduced a ten-minute-rule Bill on 23 October that aimed to have abortion decriminalised across most of the UK.

    Despite pro-life MP Fiona Bruce’s speech, MPs voted 208 to 123 to approve the motion. The Bill is highly unlikely to go forward due to limited parliamentary time. Labour MPs Stella Creasy and Conor McGinn promoted an amendment to government legislation pressurising Northern Ireland on its abortion and marriage laws.

  • Misdirection by NHS

    Christian Concern / en

    The NHS has in the last few months begun redirecting two formerly public webpages about sexual health (‘It’s OK to say no’ and ‘Peer pressure’), to an article entitled ‘15 things you should know about sex’.

    People accessing the original pages are redirected to content giving advice on how to have ‘safe sex’. The original page can’t be found via an NHS site search. Googling ‘It’s OK to say no’ does lead to a copy of the original NHS page on West Cheshire’s website.
