A year to the day
On the 30th March the Care for Women Partnership, gathered outside three significant locations to mark one year since these new and dangerous measures were enacted.
The locations included the the Department of Health and Social Care in Victoria, Parliament Square and the Royal College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians in London Bridge.
At the first location an open letter was handed to the front desk calling on policy makers to:
End “pills by post” abortion measures immediately
Ensure meticulous and impartial data collection to ascertain the full impact of these measures
Ensure women in a crisis pregnancy are properly supported and counselled by truly independent organisations.
The letter was handed to them by Natalia, one of 75,000 women to undergo a "DIY" abortion since these new measures were first introduced. She called these new measures "dangerous", and highlighted the ease with which women can be "coerced" and offered "no support". She also stated that because the abortion was conducted in her home she now "can't get away from it".
Women deserve better.
