Abortion

This amendment would have stopped BPAS and Marie Stopes from providing counselling for women with unwanted pregnancies and allowed ‘independent’ counselling including that provided by faith-based organisations.

Same-Sex Marriage

Martin Vickers voted against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill at both its second reading in February 2013[2] and its third reading in May 2013[3].
