One of the country’s largest abortion providers has been accused of paying bonuses to staff who encourage women to have the prodecures.

The allegations centre on Marie Stopes International and have come to light in a damning report by the official watchdog, the Care Quality Commission.

According to the report, staff felt ‘encouraged’ to ensure women went through with abortions because it was ‘linked to their performance bonus’.

Inspectors found evidence of a policy – in place across all 70 Marie Stopes clinics in the country – whereby staff were told to call women who had decided not to have an abortion, and offer them a new appointment.
