Boris resigns, where do leadership candidates stand on abortion?

As you have likely heard, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has announced that he has resigned.

A number of Tories have declared or are expected to soon declare that they will be putting their name forward as candidates in the leadership contest that will take place over the summer. This leadership contest will decide the new leader of the Conservatives and the UK’s next Prime Minister.

The contest will take place in two stages. The first stage (shortlisting) involves a series of votes by currently sitting MPs that will decide on the top two candidates. The second stage then involves these two candidates going onto a final vote where the membership of the Conservative party will decide on the winner.

We have just published a resource on Right To Life News that details the voting records across 19 individual votes on abortion and assisted suicide for each of the current or likely leadership candidates. 

We will be updating this table as more candidates put their names forward.
