Since March 2020, over 70,000 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.
A recent survey revealed over 70% of adults in England are concerned about the safety of home abortions.

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 response to the article BPAS said they were investigating a further 8 cases where women had taken pills beyond 10 weeks.
