Presented by Wendy Cooper Britain has an Abortion Act that provides for abortions to be carried out under the National Health Service. In many parts of the country the Act's intentions seem to be falling short of the mark. The old cry goes up: ' If you can pay it's all right.'
Tonight's programme examines the different attitudes towards the working of the Act up and down the country. We hear from the powerful anti-abortion lobby and from the people who have fought to make abortion available to every woman who satisfies the medical men that her case is proper within the law.
These attitudes are discussed as the final drafts of evidence to the Ministerial enquiry into the working of the Act are being prepared.
