VULNERABLE WOMEN WILL BE LEFT WITH NO SUPPORT
REVELATIONS that the Government is to make at-home abortion pills available are shocking. This puts women’s wellbeing at risk.
Many vulnerable women seeking medical and emotional support will instead be sent home without any medical oversight. The experience is ghastly.
In 1990, Edouard Sakiz, chairman of the company which makes the RU 86 abortion pill (Mifepristone), said: ‘It is not at all easy to use… It’s an appalling psychological ordeal.’ This new policy will see women facing this ordeal alone.
I am familiar with the ordeals facing women and men from the cries for help we receive after abortion.
One man sobbed as he explained he and his wife had decided to go ahead with a medical abortion but when she delivered a tiny baby at home they were inconsolable. They had not understood the realities.
Medical abortion is often described as safe procedure but is not without risks.
Hospital admission, blood transfusion, or surgical abortion may be necessary if it goes wrong. Many women find medical abortions more painful than surgical abortions.
If women face these situations at home, they will not have access to immediate medical intervention they may need. Even if a DIY abortion works, the woman will be left to recover on her own – physically and emotionally.
Our abortion laws have corrupted and hardened the hearts of many health professionals working in this area and the political voices that give them encouragement.
Today marks 50 years since the Abortion Act was passed.
It seems those advocating for abortion are more interested in point scoring than treating the issue with the gravity and care it deserves.
We cannot force politicians or the Government to do right by women.
And this latest initiative shows an utter disregard for human life, a disregard for the health of women and a disregard for the proper use of taxpayers’ money. I am a young woman, consider myself a feminist but am deeply disappointed in the way our leaders are putting women at risk in the so-called name of progress.
Society must not be taken in by a scheme that ignores the long-term consequences for women and their families.
Abortion pills at home are not fit to be deemed part of healthcare.
