Pro-life campaigners condemn medical body's support for abortion pills at home

Pro-life group the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) has condemned a leading medical professional body's support for women taking abortion pills at home.

At present, women having an abortion early on in their pregnancy are allowed to take the second pill, misoprostol, at home, but the first one, mifepristone, has to be taken at a clinic.

In its new report, called Better for Women, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) said that the current definition of "at home" is too narrow.

The RCOG says that the Department of Health and Social Care should broaden the definition to allow women to take mifepristone at home, as well as misoprostol.
