Government to put thousands of women at risk after double U-turn on DIY abortions

Mar 31, 2020 by

from Christian Concern:

The government has last night (March 30) undertaken an incredible double U-turn by announcing the most significant change to abortion law since 1967.

The official announcement comes despite the government categorically stating last week that there would be no change to abortion law as part of its response to Covid-19.

The announcement will allow women to undertake abortions in their own homes without medical supervision.

The decision comes without any public consultation, parliamentary scrutiny or debate, with the government itself having warned that the move would put thousands of vulnerable women at risk at an already highly vulnerable time.

‘Administrative error’

On Monday 23 March, hours before the national lock down, the Department for Health and Social Care had announced the extreme changes to abortion law on Twitter.

The pro-abortion lobby claimed that the measures were needed because 44,000 women would be unable to access abortion services during the coronavirus crisis.

The formal legislation had been legally signed off by Mark Davies, Director of Population Health, but hours later was dramatically pulled with the tenuous claim that there had been an ‘administrative error.’

The government web page announcing the changes instead had the following message for visitors:

“The information on this page has been removed because it was published in error. This was published in error. There will be no changes to abortion regulations.”

This was followed by the Health Secretary, Matthew Hancock, categorically stating in parliament that: ‘We have no proposals to change abortion law in our Covid-19 response.’
