  • The Abortion Safe Access Zones Scotland Bill

    Created: 07/11/2023
    News/Events Category: Health and Social Care


    The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee has launched a call for written evidence on the Abortion (Safe Access Zones) (Scotland) Bill.

    The Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) Scotland Bill proposes to create “safe access zones” around places where abortion services are provided. These places are referred to as “protected premises” throughout the Bill and this call for views.  

    The Bill is not concerned with whether or not abortion services should be legal, and does not propose any changes to abortion law in Scotland.  

    Knowing your views will help Members assess how to improve the proposed law, and whether the draft Bill should be passed into law by the Scottish Parliament. 

    They are seeking your views on the Abortion Services (Safe Access Zones) (Scotland) Bill 

    You can either complete: 

    • A short survey to provide general views and comments on the Bill overall

    • A structured call for evidence to provide detailed comments on individual provisions in the Bill

    Please note that they can only accept submissions via the online platform. If you require assistance to share your views via the platform for accessibility reasons, please contact the clerks. They will not accept submissions of views in any other form (e.g. email, Twitter etc) unless this has been agreed with the Clerks for accessibility reasons.

    The closing date for submissions is Wednesday 20 December 2023.
