British Movement Advocating At Home Abortion Pills

London, England, Dec 12, 2017 / 12:04 am ().- A new effort in the UK has garnered the support of some of Britain’s maternity doctors who are recommending that women should be allowed to take abortion pills at home.

But some critics are advising against the practice, saying that aborting a pregnancy at home would be more traumatic for women.

Professor Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has argued that the current law in England and Wales surrounding abortion pills puts women at risk of bleeding on the way home from the doctor’s office and potentially miscarrying in public.

Under standard procedures in England and Wales, pregnant women receiving an early medical abortion  within the first nine weeks gestation must receive the abortifacient drugs mifepristone and misoprostol in front of a doctor or nurse.
