Tory MP Ann Widdecombe has called for the abortion charity accused of referring women to a Spanish clinic to be closed.
Widdecombe was due to table an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons yesterday, calling for the closure of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, which receives £12m in funding from the Department of Health.
The organisation is facing a DoH investigation into newspaper allegations that it referred hundreds of women to the Ginemedex clinic in Spain, which aborts foetuses up to 30 weeks old. Under UK law, foetuses can not be terminated after 24 weeks.
Health minister John Reid MP asked chief medical officer, Liam Donaldson to carry out an inquiry into the Sunday Telegraph findings last week, while a Charity Commission investigation is already underway.
The charity, which claims to be passing on information rather than breaking the law, says it would co-operate with investigators.
