Helen Sutan reported earlier this week on still more evidence that all but screams “Do It Yourself chemical abortions are very dangerous to women.”
“Based on 85 freedom of information requests to NHS trusts, it was discovered that in 2020, more over 1 in 17 women (about 20 per day) who utilized the tablets by post service required hospital treatment,” Sutan wrote.
“According to a new study, more than 10,000 women who used an NHS-provided DIY abortion medication at home in 2020 need hospital treatment to deal with the side effects.”
Self-induced abortions performed by women at home were a response to COVID “but is now being suggested that it should be phased out now that the limitations have been eased.”
Kevin Duffy, an independent consultant, spearheaded the FOI probe. “This is the disturbing truth of abortion care during the epidemic that has not been acknowledged to the government by providers,” he said.
“This study reveals the truth about what thousands of women dealing with crisis pregnancies had through during the pandemic,” Duffy told Sutan. “I t clearly indicates what needs to change and why the government should not make DIY home abortion telemedicine a permanent practice. It’s past time to put an end to it.”
According to Sutan, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) admits it does not have the data for 45 million people in the UK that Precocity LTD produced this week in its study.
Despite the fact that at least 5.9% of women who use abortion pills require hospital treatment as a result of this failure, the “data also reveal that abortion doctors and the Department of Health and Human Services are failing to disclose medical abortion treatment failure as a complication.” About half—3%–require surgery to “complete” the abortion.
“A failure rate of 1 in 17 women needing to go to hospital due to DIY home abortion is unacceptable,” Andrea Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, stated.
