The Welsh Health Minister, Lesley Griffiths, says she would "strongly" oppose a move to reduce the time limit on when a woman can have an abortion.
It comes after comments made by the Health Minister Jeremy Hunt to The Times newspaper, where Mr Hunt said the limit should be cut to 12 weeks into a pregnancy - half the current limit of 24 weeks.
While health is a devolved issue and Mr Hunt hasn't officially submitted the proposals, Lesley Griffiths AM, said: "It is something that I cannot countenance as being in the best interests of woman in Wales."
I've read Jeremy Hunt's remarks about reducing the time limit and this is something that I cannot countenance as being in the best interests of woman in Wales. Should the UK Government make any formal proposals to change the law, I will be strongly opposing such a move.
