BPAS, a UK abortion provider, just petitioned the government to allow women to induce abortion at home. They lost.
But the point is, they want women to have less contact with a doctor, not more, less medical care, not more. When in fact these self-induced early abortions don’t always go quite according to plan.
I’m not sure what motivates them to push for this. Is it normalization? You can brush your teeth, make a cup of tea and now, have an abortion–all at home? Is it money?
I can’t step into the mind of a pro-abortion person and comment, but I will say this: I can’t see how it’s for women’s health.
Jennifer adds: What really gets me is this little tidbit, “Ann Furedi, chief executive of BPAS, said: “It cannot be morally right to compel a woman to physically take tablets in a clinic and to subject her to the anxiety that symptoms will start on the journey back when her doctor knows it is safe and indeed preferable for her to take these at home. ” Furedi seems to assume that every woman is going back to her country estate for bed rest and foot rubs after taking the second dose! In reality, many are going back to a council estate, other children, daily chores, grocery shopping, possibly even their jobs. If symptoms “will start on the journey back”, maybe women need to stay under the doctors’ supervision even longer to ensure their safety.by
