Evidence for a 12 week abortion limit

We're waiting for David C Briggs to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department of Health,

Recently the Health secretary, Jeremy Hunt MP has been quoted as saying that

"I'm not someone who thinks that abortion should be made illegal. Everyone looks at the evidence and comes to a view about when that moment is and my own view is that 12 weeks is the right point for it."

Please provide all sources of evidence that Jeremy Hunt MP used in reaching this decision. In cases in which the piece of evidence itself cannot be provided, please provide a suitable citation or URL to where the evidence can be obtained.

Kind regards,

David C Briggs
