BBC show which featured a debate on abortion is accused of ignoring a poll that showed most don’t want a change in laws

The BBC has suppressed an ‘inconvenient’ survey that showed the British public has a conservative attitude to abortion.

Pollsters ICM found no widespread support for scrapping abortion laws in research commissioned for the BBC2’s Abortion On Trial.

But when the show, hosted by Anne Robinson, aired last Monday, there was no mention of the result.

Instead, producers ‘cherry-picked’ results which support a radical campaign to decriminalise abortion – a move which would end the 24-week time limit on terminations for so-called ‘social’ reasons.
