Women In England Able To Take Abortion Pill At Home

“In some cases, women can begin to miscarry before they have reached their home,” the statement added. Women can still opt to take the second pill at a clinic.

According to the Department of Health and Social Care, four out of five terminations in England are early medical abortions, carried out under 10 weeks’ gestation.

The statement said the government would work with institutions like the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to develop guidance for medical professionals providing the at-home option to patients.

The president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Lesley Regan, said in a statement that the change was “a major step forward for women’s health care.”

“This simple and practical measure will provide women with significantly more choice and is the most compassionate care we can give them,” Ms. Regan said. “It will allow women to avoid distress and embarrassment of bleeding and pain during their journey home from an unnecessary second visit to a clinic or hospital.”
