The Health Secretary has written to the Government's senior law officer for "urgent clarification" after two doctors accused of arranging abortions based on the sex of an unborn baby avoided prosecution.
Jeremy Hunt said abortion on the grounds of gender selection was "against the law and completely unacceptable" and had written to Attorney General Dominic Grieve about the decision.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decided that although there was enough evidence to justify prosecution, it would not be in the public interest.
