Woman tells of Scotland's 'limited abortion service'

A woman who travelled to England to have an abortion says she cannot understand why she was offered a "limited service" in Scotland.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the experience added to an already stressful situation.

New figures show that 180 women travelled from Scotland to England last year to get an abortion.

Many made the journey because health boards in Scotland impose stricter time constraints on when operations can be carried out than the legal limit of 24 weeks.
