About the consultation

The Minister for Health and Social Services has launched a review of the Termination of Pregnancy (Jersey) Law 1997.

Termination of pregnancy is the medical process of ending a pregnancy so that it does not result in the birth of a child. It does not include miscarriage or still birth.

The Minister wants to find out if Jersey's legislation:

  • reflects current social values
  • meets the needs of women
  • takes account of changes in medical practice

The purpose of this survey is to gather views on the current law and its provisions. This survey seeks input from all Islanders, regardless of gender and personal experience.
