The Christian Medical Foundation is lobbying the government hard over the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill currently being discussed in parliament, in favour of reducing the time limit on abortions. The Christian Medical Foundation was recently exposed when at least eight of its members gave evidence to the government Inquiry by the Science and Technology Committee into the future of abortion law in Britain which claimed that abortion harmed a woman’s health- without disclosing their membership of the CMF (see here).
The CMF also hosts the minority report produced by the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries who has also in the past introduced a Bill to cut back the time limit.
