Women will be offered drug-induced abortions at home rather than at a clinic if the Government agrees to a pilot scheme proposed by a leading family planning organisation.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service, which is the main provider of abortions outside the health service and is responsible for 80 per cent of abortions, says the scheme will make the procedure quicker and easier.
The organisation is asking the Department of Health to approve a pilot study of 500 home abortions.
Ann Furedi, its chief executive, said the move was a matter of choice and was in direct response to requests from women.
Mifepristone has killed several women, and in clinical trials, many women experienced bleeding so severe they required transfusions. This is a "safe" drug to take at home? You may as well tell mothers that it's safe to slit their wrists while watching soap operas!
