SPUC Pro-life Scotland Ltd, petitioner

Health law – Abortion – Approval by Scottish Ministers – Judicial review. Court of Session: Refusing a judicial review petition seeking reduction of the Scottish Ministers' decision to approve a pregnant woman's home as a class of place where treatment for termination of pregnancy could be carried out, in which the petitioner argued that a home was not a permissible class for the purposes of the legislation and that the approval issued ran counter to the requirement in the legislation that abortion be carried out by a medical practitioner, the court held that the respondents' decision to approve a woman's home as a place where one stage of the termination of pregnancy could be carried out was not unlawful on either of the grounds contended for by the petitioner.
