Hospital and Ambulance Data 2020

Health ministers say these new measures are being "carefully monitored" however grass roots data collected from local hospitals, the CQC and ambulance services tell a very different story.

Abortion Pill Reversal 

Since 2020, two qualified UK doctors have been able to reverse the lethal impact of the first abortion pill (mifipristone) using simple and safe progesterone pills. This has had a success rate of 51% and yet women are still routinely being denied  information about this life saving treatment.

In the media


Since March 2020, over 180,000 women in England and Wales have undergone DIY home abortion.


Abortion pills are being sent to women by abortion providers after calls as short as 30 minutes, without any face to face assessment, identity checks or ultra sound scans to see how far into the pregnancy the women are. 

The abortion industry claims these new measures are "safe, ethical and effective" however the evidence suggests the total opposite.

Care for Women is a partnership of UK pro-life groups seeking to compassionately expose and detail the true impact these pills are having on women's health and society at large through stories, data gathering and discussion. 

We share a deep concern, not just for the unborn babies killed by these pills, but for the women taking them, without any in-person medical supervision, often totally alone. We care for women.
