Charity provided almost 200 abortions in seven years

A UK organisation says it's provided abortion medication to almost 200 women on the Island since 2010.

Women on Web revealed the figures as it responded to a consultation on new abortion laws being proposed by Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson.

It's the first time the figures have been made available as the tablets are technically illegal on the Isle of Man and are often seized at the Post Office.

Women on Web says 196 women asked for the tablets and all were less than 10 weeks pregnant.
