In March 2017 the Advisory Group undertook a 3-day knowledge exchange visit to the Isle of Man. This was a unique opportunity to engage with politicians, healthcare professionals and activists. The aim of the visit was to share our experiences of examining abortion law reform in Northern Ireland and to learn about the Isle of Man’s current law reform proposals. This report summarises our findings both from desk based research and discussions with key stakeholders in the Isle of Man. The report sets out the current law in the Isle of Man, then provides demographic statistics on those travelling for abortion from the Isle of Man and then moves on to consider issues with the current law in practice and proposals for reform.
