A Brief History of British Abortion Law

The Independent has a summary of the history of abortion legislation in the U.K. We note that it repeats a fallacious history of a "Catholic Doctrine of Passive Conception" and omits mention of the fact that abortion was always considered wrong and sinful in Catholic tradition. Still, it useful to see the different contours of the debate in a country where such matters can still be legislated.
