ABSTRACT
The article discusses several issues related to abortions and lack of systematic proposal to modify legislation on abortion in England and Wales. Discussions are made on several topics including the legal interpretation of the right to conscientious objection in relation to the provision of abortion services, and a substantial change in abortion legislation, based on the belief that unborn human beings should be granted the right to life. It also presents the views of the U.S. Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights.
