Women in Ireland should not take abortion pills, says Harris
Senior obstetrician warns of ‘serious dangers’ when women take abortion pills without medical supervision
April 12, 2018
There are significant dangers to the unsupervised use of abortion pills, the Minister for Health Simon Harris and the chair of the Institute of Obstetricians Peter Boylan warned yesterday while calling for a Yes vote in the abortion.
The widespread use of “illegal” and “unsupervised” abortion pills present a compelling case for repealing the eighth amendment and legalising the pills so they can be used under medical supervision, the men said.
