Abor­tion pill ac­cess

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

WOMEN should be able to take abor­tion pills in their own home without see­ing a doc­tor face-to­face, lead­ing medics have said.

The Royal Col­lege of Ob­ste­tri­cians and Gy­nae­col­o­gists (RCOG) says women should be able to ob­tain abor­tion pills fol­low­ing an on­line chat, such as via Skype or FaceTime. Pro­fes­sor Les­ley Re­gan, pres­i­dent of the RCOG, said the mea­sures “would im­prove the ac­ces­si­bil­ity of early med­i­cal abor­tion care... par­tic­u­larly in ru­ral ar­eas”.
