Today, the House of Commons has voted to keep the option of early medical abortion at home. 

MSI Reproductive Choices’ UK Advocacy and Public Affairs Advisor Louise McCudden said: 

“We are delighted that MPs have voted to keep the option of at-home abortion care. 

“This was a vote for evidence over ideology, a vote for reproductive rights, and a vote for gender equality. 

“Making this safe and popular service a permanent option will particularly benefit those who struggle to attend face-to-face appointments, including those in abusive relationships, those with caring responsibilities, and those without transport. 

“Everyone chooses abortion for different reasons and under different circumstances. It is important that we can offer options that take into account personal circumstances – and that includes taking both pills at home. 

“Trusting people to make these choices for themselves is a vital part of how MSI delivers high quality, responsive care for anyone who needs us.”
