As you may have seen in the media today, there has been a tragic case of a woman being sent abortion pills by the abortion provider, BPAS, who had not accurately established the gestation of her baby, Lily, who was then aborted at between 32 and 34 weeks, which is around 8 months gestation.
The case would not have happened had the gestation of baby Lily been accurately identified by ultrasound or a physical examination during an in-person appointment. If this appointment had taken place, the gestation of baby Lily would have been accurately identified and the abortion could not have taken place.
In-person appointments had previously been required ahead of a medical abortion taking place, but abortion provider BPAS successfully lobbied the Government to have them removed during the pandemic. The Government then reinstated these appointments, but BPAS then worked with pro-abortion MPs to have the Government’s decision overturned.
Rather than take responsibility for sending out abortion pills 22 weeks beyond the legal limit for at-home abortions, this same abortion provider, BPAS, is now running a major campaign that is cynically exploiting this tragic case to lobby the Government to fully ‘decriminalise’ abortion – which would introduce abortion up to birth!
