Sugg abortion amendment passes 75:35

We just wanted to update you to let you know that unfortunately Baroness Sugg’s abortion amendment has passed by 75 votes for to 35 votes against.

The Health and Care Bill is now going to go through a process called ‘ping pong’, meaning it will return to the Commons where MPs will have an opportunity to vote on this amendment.

This means we are going to be facing a very big battle in the House of Commons.

We will be in contact shortly with information on how best to contact your MP ahead of the vote in the Commons.

Until then, we wanted to thank you again for all the work that supporters like you have put into making contact with Peers on these two amendments over the last couple of weeks.
