News from the UK:
The draft guidance from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is for all doctors, nurses and counsellors advising women contemplating terminations. Its first recommendation on "what women need to know" instructs health professionals: "Women should be advised that abortion is generally safer than continuing a pregnancy to term." The guidance also says that women who are deciding whether to have an abortion must be told that most do not suffer any psychological harm.
