Scotland is the First UK Country to Allow Women to Take Abortion Pills at Home

26 October 2017

Professor Alan Templeton announced from the podium at the wonderful The Abortion Act 1967 Conference held at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) earlier this week that women in Scotland will soon be able to take the misoprostol component of early medical abortion at home. The date has yet to be announced but the decision has been made. We can but hope that this woman-centred, safe and compassionate change is also sanctioned in England and Wales. One would think it difficult to argue otherwise.
