BBC investigation in to sex-selective abortions

Thank you for contacting me regarding an investigation by the BBC into sex-selective abortion.

Abortion on the grounds of sex alone is illegal and I am pleased that the Government guidance for doctors on how to comply with the Act makes this clear. With regard to the Non-Invasive Prenatal Test, this test is never meant to be used to determine the sex of a child and I share your concerns that this test could be misused to inform sex selective abortion. That is why I am glad that the Government will continue to review the evidence regarding the test.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
