11.09.2020 Abortions in England & Wales increase during Covid-19

The DIY home abortion regime recently introduced by the English authorities has coincided with a significant increase in abortions in 2020. In the first six months of 2020 there were 4,296 additional abortions compared to the same period last year. The increase in abortions is particularly shocking given that 2019 had the highest number of abortions since records began.

The interim report on abortions in 2020 shows 109,836 abortions took place on English and Welsh residents between January and June.

It was also during this same time period that leaked NHS emails showed that tragically two women died from DIY home abortions.

In addition, police have launched an investigation into the death of an unborn baby following a home abortion at 28 gestational weeks.

A similar regime of DIY home abortions was introduced by the Minister for Heath Simon Harris back in March. The Pro Life Campaign are currently running a campaign to stop this dangerous DIY abortion regime.
