DIY abortions: why is the concern left to Christian Concern?

Jul 3, 2020 by

by Archbishop Cranmer:

[…] the Government changed the regulations to permit home abortions – literally, in the backstreets, front streets and side streets. No matter what street you live on, you can make a simple phone call and confirm that you are less than 10-weeks pregnant (which may be a lie); order self-administering abortion pills, wait a day for them to arrive, open the packet, swallow two pills immediately, another two a bit later, and, hey presto, all foetal life extinguished and evacuated. Literally, a Do-It-Yourself home abortion: no interfering doctors, no in-person consultation, no invasive medical checks or assessments; just a swift prescription of Mifepristone and Misoprostol over the phone, and then the passing of the unborn child at home without direct medical supervision…

…The change to permit the home to become an approved place for abortion was made without any public consultation, parliamentary scrutiny or debate. It was also made in haste and with some confusion: the announcement was initially withdrawn because it wasn’t authorised; then Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Parliament that no changes were being made to the regulatory restrictions on approved places; and then, inexplicably, they were made.

No Bishops have raised any concern – in Parliament or on Twitter. There have been a few questions from MPs, but these followed the High Court challenge brought by Christian Concern. Sir Edward Leigh MP: “To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether his Department undertook a risk assessment before issuing the March 2020 Approval of a Class of Places approval enabling at-home abortions.”
