London, England, Dec 3, 2019 / 00:22 am
A pro-life group in the UK has decried a report from a London-based medical association calling for women to be able to access abortion pills without meeting in-person with a doctor.
On Dec. 2, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) released a report entitled "Better For Women." The report said that 60% of women cannot get an abortion locally. It recommended a nationwide expansion of abortion drug accessibility through the use of telemedicine.
The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Children (SPUC) lamented the recommendation, arguing that it underestimates the potential risks of abortion drugs.
"The RCOG is playing fast and loose with women's health. Their approach is propaganda to deceive women into thinking that abortion pills are safe and simple. They are neither," said Antonia Tully, SPUC Campaigns Director.
