The Comforts of Home

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 28, 2003

Britain's Telegraph reports that the British Pregnancy Advisory Service is pushing for a pilot study of 500 Mifepristone abortions.

Ann Furedi, its chief executive, said the move was a matter of choice and was in direct response to requests from women. ...

Under the proposals, women will be able to administer the drugs themselves at home.

"It would be very like having an early term miscarriage," Miss Furedi said. "It would be painful and might involve extensive bleeding, cramps and nausea."

The foetus, which at nine weeks is recognisable as a very small baby, would be disposed of in the lavatory.

"This is an unpleasant procedure and many women become very distressed in a clinic," Miss Furedi said. "They would prefer to be at home."

Disposed of in the lavatory.
