Fertilisation and Embryology Bill - What sould the Abortion time limit be?

Tonight our MPs will be debating the Abortion time limit as part of the Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. The debate starts at 18:30 and a free vote should take place around 22:00. Conservative MP Nadine Dorries wants the abortion laws changed. She believes the right of a woman to choose had its limits.

She said: "If a baby feels pain as part of a barbaric abortion process - which is what happens post-20 weeks - and if we know that baby could live if it was allowed to be born, then there comes the point when that baby has rights which are of equal parity to the mother's."

However, Health minister Dawn Primarolo, said: "There is no science that shows us that the survival rates have changed since we took the decision to have the time limit at 24 weeks."

I'll be voting for 20 weeks in this poll. I believe that if their is a chance of survival - then the baby must be given that chance.
