(Society for the Protection of Unborn Children) – The “devastating” truth about DIY home abortion has been revealed after freedom of information requests found that over 10,000 women required hospital treatment in England in 2020 after suffering serious complications.

An investigation, which included 85 freedom of information requests submitted to National Health Service (NHS) trusts, has shown that 1 in 17 women who used pills-by-post abortion services in 2020 suffered from side effects so severe that they required hospital treatment.

The investigation found that 5.9% of women required treatment because of incomplete abortions, with women retaining parts of their aborted babies.

  • 3% of women required surgical evacuation of the remains of an unborn child after abortion pill failure.
  • 2.3% of women were treated for haemorrhages.

The complication rate mirrored similar studies and reports, with the investigation concluding that: “We can say that complications arising from the failure of the medical abortion treatment are common and should be planned for.”

You can access the full study and findings here.

Complications are ‘common,’ but still go unreported

The investigation, led by Percuity LTD and headed by consultant Kevin Duffy, also found that abortion providers and the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) did not report abortion pill failure as a complication, despite such failures leading to hospital treatment – meaning that less than 1-in-5 complications were reported.

Kevin Duffy said: “This is the disturbing truth of abortion care during the pandemic that has not been reported to the government by providers…”

“It demonstrates clearly what needs to change and why the government must not make DIY home abortion telemedicine permanent. The time to end it is now well overdue.”

Kevin Duffy, a former Marie Stopes International employee and pro-life convert, has spoken with SPUC previously about the unscrupulous and dishonest methods of the abortion industry.

Freedom-loving Australians are sending out an urgent call for help, a veritable SOS.

Over the past year and a half, Australia's democracy has been replaced by a type of medical fascism which has grasped control of power by using police state tactics.

In that time, freedoms have been curtailed or suppressed altogether and human rights have been abused, often with the use of the police force.

Please WATCH this video from our friends at Reignite Democracy Australia to better understand how BAD it is right now in Australia.

And, the situation just continues to deteriorate, so much so that our friends Down Under are now asking for outside help.

We simply must come to their aid! But, what can we do?

Please consider participating in the following two action items:

1) SAVE THE DATE and ATTEND A Pro-Freedom Rally on DEC. 4th (12pm, local time) at the Australian High Commission in London, (address below)

2) Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, directed to the High Commissioner of Australia to the United Kingdom, H.E. George Brandis, asking him to:

  • End the lockdowns in Australia
  • End police brutality in Australia
  • End mandatory vaccinations in Australia
  • Restore the freedoms of speech, assembly and travel in Australia

Remember, after signing, please make a note of this important date and time (and address, below): Saturday, December 4th, 2021, 12pm.

And, please commit to peaceful protest in support of Australian freedom at the location below on that date!

Our friends Down Under are reaching their limits. So, we must now join them in their struggle to retain their freedoms and human rights against police brutality and medical dictatorship.

Thank you for taking part in this important campaign.

The tragic and lonely reality of DIY abortion

DIY home abortion was introduced in response to lockdown at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. SPUC has campaigned tirelessly against the measure.

In total, from the start of April 2020 to the end of September 2021, 180,182 women in England had abortions at home using abortion pills, misoprostol and mifepristone, or taking at least one pill, misoprostol, at home after taking mifepristone at a clinic.

Since early 2020, SPUC has been reporting on the lonely and tragic reality faced by women undergoing an abortion at home without medical supervision, including a woman named Sophie, who, after such an abortion, reported that “there were big chunks coming out of me.”

“I would break down sobbing in the shower because chunks were coming out of me – it was absolutely horrifying…. I don’t want anyone to suffer like I did.”

Read Sophie’s story here.

In early 2021, SPUC also responded to a government consultation on DIY abortion, calling on the Government to end home abortions immediately.

These facts cannot be ignored – we must protect women

Michael Robinson, SPUC’s Executive Director (Public Affairs & Legal Services), said: “This devastating report confirms what SPUC has said all along: that DIY home abortion is not safe or simple.”

“Earlier this year, a report revealed that ambulance calls for abortion complications rose by 54% in 2020, as reported by SPUC, an urgent indication that women were being put at risk by DIY abortion.”

“These are the facts, confirmed by numerous reports, as well as anecdotal evidence, which the mainstream media and the Government have continued to ignore.

Kevin Duffy’s detailed investigation has exposed the disgraceful lack of care and professionalism, which underlies the abortion industry and its advocates, towards mothers undergoing a physically and mentally traumatic procedure – which also ultimately leads to the death of an unborn child.

Once again, SPUC calls on the Government to cease, with immediate effect, dangerous DIY home abortion services, which place women at an unacceptable level of risk.”

“We must protect the unborn and we must protect women,” said Robinson.
