‘Both Lives Pledge’ Campaign Response

Abortion is a legal right in Scotland and the SNP will protect that right. The party has no plans to restrict existing abortion legislation.

We are clear that those accessing abortion services should not be targeted for choosing to access this right. 

The SNP will support any local authority who wishes to use their powers to establish by-laws to create protest-free buffer zones outside clinics that provide abortion services.
