ABOUT

Since March 2020, over 100,000 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.

DIY Home Abortion Stories

While the abortion industry and the media are quick to present "DIY" home abortion as a heavy period, the reality for many women is far more devastating.

Hospital and Ambulance Data 

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.

Mystery Client investigation

In the summer of 2020 a Mystery Client Investigation was conducted into the new pills by post abortion measures. The results revealed multiple and serious safety concerns.

Public Opinion

A recent survey revealed over 70% of adults in England are concerned about the safety of home abortions.

Pharmaceutical Concerns

Using yellow card scheme (reporting of side effects of medicines) and officially regulated prescribing advice and other trusted sources,  Christians in Pharmacy highlight numerous “distressing to life threatening” side effects that can be caused by abortion pills at home

GP Opinion Poll

A new opinion poll has found that 86% of GPs in Britain are concerned about the risk of women being coerced into an abortion under the Government’s DIY home abortion programme.

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.

Feb 2021

Andrea Williams from Christian Concern speaks to The Times about the true impact these pills are having and why this would be a step backwards for medicine.

Feb 2021

Isabel Webster of Sky News  interviews five women in favour of the measures and three against, giving the first and last word to a woman who had a "safe and simple experience" of DIY home abortion.  The emotional climax of the piece is given to a retire abortionist who details a fatal at home abortion that took place 50 years ago in Nigeria to justify the need for these pills.

Feb 2021

 Baroness Stroud writing in The Telegraph warns of the threat these new measures pose to women's health and safety, especially the venerable and the abused. She backs up her claim with compelling data suggesting the impact of these pills is not being properly monitored.

 

Dec 2020

Article in The New Statesman claims new pills by post  measures have "revolutionised abortion access". The article cites DHSC data that has been proven to be inaccurate claiming there has only been one complication between April and June. 

 

 

 

Dec 2020

Two months after the measures were brought in The Sun ran this article regarding a woman in the Midlands who took these  abortion pills at 28 weeks- 18 weeks after she was meant to, and 4 weeks past the legal cut off for all abortions in the UK. In response to the article BPAS said they were investigating a further 8 cases where women had taken pills beyond 10 weeks.
