UK Retracts Order Allowing Mothers to Kill Babies at Home During Pandemic

In a dramatic turnabout, the British government has withdrawn a directive allowing women to abort babies at home, hours after it was published on the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) website.

On Monday, the DHSC posted an “approval” from Heath Secretary Matt Hancock announcing that women would no longer need to go to a hospital or clinic to have an abortion during the period of the lockdown caused by the Chinese virus.

The directive stipulated two venues as “approved as a class of place” where a woman could abort her baby: the woman’s home or the residence of a registered medical practitioner.

The mother could perform the abortion by consulting “via video link, telephone conference or other electronic means” with a registered medical practitioner and would be “prescribed Mifepristone and Misoprostol to be taken for the purposes of the termination of her pregnancy,” the document stated.

However, hours later the directive was pulled from the DHSC website with a message stating that the notification had been “published in error. There will be no change to abortion regulations.”

Church Militant obtained a copy of the directive, signed by Director of Population Health Mark Davies, before it was removed from the government’s website.

On Tuesday, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) — the United Kindom’s largest abortion provider, retaliated against the government’s backpedaling, inciting its pro-abort supporters to write to their members of Parliament and have the order reinstated.
