An NHS whistleblower has leaked an internal email that reveals there has been an ‘escalating risk’ around ‘DIY’ abortions. The email highlights that women are suffering from potentially life-threatening complications, including ‘ruptured ectopics’, and ‘major resuscitation for major haemorrhage.’

The email further reveals that one woman was able to receive abortion pills at 32 weeks pregnant (20 weeks beyond the limit for ‘at-home’ abortion in Scotland), and mentions “3 police investigations. . . linked to these incidents,” one of which is a murder investigation “as there is a concern that the baby was live born” after a woman used the ‘DIY’ abortion service.

Scotland also recently launched a constultation on ‘at-home’ abortion, which makes no mention of the above leaked email, and only minor references to the potential issues with ‘at-home’ abortion. Yet, since ‘DIY’ abortion servics were temporarily allowed by the Government, a number of significant problems have arisen.

A nationwide undercover investigation found evidence of abortion providers putting women at significant risk by not carrying out basic checks before sending them ‘DIY’ home abortion pills. The study also discovered that ‘DIY’ home abortion pills can easily be obtained and administered to others, potentially in a coercive manner, which is especially concerning for domestic abuse victims.

In May, it was revealed that UK police were investigating the death of an unborn baby after the mother took ‘DIY’ home abortion pills while 28 weeks pregnant. In addition, abortion provider BPAS announced that it was investigating a further eight cases of women taking ‘DIY’ home abortion pills beyond the 10-week limit in England and Wales, raising questions over what checks are being conducted to ensure the law isn’t being broken and dangerous later-term abortions aren’t happening.

Please enter your postcode above to email your MSPs now asking them to write to the First Minister to ask the Scottish Government to revoke the dangerous decision they have made to introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions to Scotland and to ensure the consultation is updated with adequate references to the dangers these ‘services’ present.
