Women should be allowed to take abortion pills at home, says leading maternity doctor

Women should be allowed to take abortion pills at home to avoid them miscarrying on the way home from the clinic, Britain’s leading maternity doctor has said.

Currently, women who ask for an early medical abortion (EMA) in the first nine weeks of pregnancy must take two drugs, one or two days apart.

And, by law, both sets must be taken in front of a doctor or nurse.

But Professor Lesley Regan, president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), said that allowing women to take abortion pills and then leave puts them at risk of suffering bleeding or complications on the way home.
