Before you leave…

MPs will shortly vote on proposed law changes from MPs Diana Johnson and Stella Creasy that would make extreme changes to our abortion laws.

These law changes would make it more likely that healthy babies are aborted at home for any reason, up to birth.

Please take 30 seconds to contact your MP to ask them to vote for an alternative proposed law change that will help protect women and babies from dangerous late-term home abortions:

The amendment

Flick Drummond MP has tabled amendment NC115 to the Criminal Justice Bill that would ensure that women have an in-person consultation with a medical professional before taking abortion pills at home.

The amendment has been signed by a cross-party group of 46 MPs including former Deputy PMs Thérèse Coffey and Damian Green, former Cabinet minister Sir Jacob Rees-Mogg, former leader of the Conservative Party and cabinet minister Sir Iain Duncan Smith, former Lib Dem leader Tim Farron, and Labour MP Rachael Maskell.

Why there needs to be a change in the law

In June 2023, Carla Foster was jailed for 28 months for taking abortion pills sent by BPAS, Britain’s largest abortion provider, when she was 32-34 weeks gestation but claimed to be seven weeks pregnant. 

She later described being traumatised by seeing the face of her dead baby whom she named Lily. 

If Carla Foster had been given an in-person consultation with a medical professional, where the gestation of baby Lily could have been accurately determined, before being sent abortion pills, she would not have been able to get the abortion pills and this tragic case would likely have been prevented.

Baby Lily would likely be here today and Carla Foster’s life would not have been put at risk by performing a late-term abortion at home.

Pro-abortion campaigners have cynically exploited this tragic case to call for law changes that would likely lead to a significant increase in the number of women performing late-term abortions at home, endangering the lives of many more women. 

They would also lead to an increased number of viable babies’ lives being ended well beyond the 24-week abortion time limit and beyond the point at which they would be able to survive outside the womb.

Amendment NC115 would reinstate in-person consultations with a medical professional prior to an abortion taking place at home.

At this consultation, medical professionals would have the opportunity to accurately assess, in person, any likely health risks for a woman taking abortion pills, her gestational age and the possibility of a coerced abortion.

This would help protect women from the health risks involved with performing a late-term abortion, along with identifying many other health risks that can be accurately assessed with an in-person consultation.

It would also protect babies from having their lives ended in late-term home abortions, as baby Lily did.

Over 800 medical professionals have signed an open letter to all 650 MPs outlining the risks of at-home abortions and calling on MPs to make a law change to return to in-person consultations.

Polling published in the Daily Telegraph on 15 May 2024 shows that women are also supportive of this law change, with 71% of women supporting the reinstatement of in-person appointments and only 9% of women being in favour of the status quo.
