UK: Court Approves DIY Abortions During COVID-19 Lockdown

The UK's High Court has ruled that DIY home abortions are legal, upholding a regulation to allow women to take abortion pills at home with a phone or virtual doctor consult up to 10 weeks gestation during the pandemic. The challenge to the law was brought by pro-life Christian Concern, who argued the law risked women's health and safety and did not account for the psychological and physical effects of abortion. The group pointed out that the Health Secretary "was not given the full picture by civil servants being informed by members of the abortion lobby, so it appears that those civil servants in practice acted as lobbyists for abortionists," explained Michael Phillips. Christian Concern plans to appeal the decision.
