Tomorrow, 30 March, marks the first anniversary of the introduction of the DIY abortion regime in Britain.
SPUC is calling on pro-lifers throughout the country to remember the unborn lives lost and the women hurt from DIY abortion, by lighting a candle on that day.
SPUC’s Alithea Williams said: “This is a tragic anniversary. It is estimated that 75,000 DIY home abortions have taken place since the policy was introduced. That could be as many as 75,000 babies lost, and 75,000 women hurt.
“The stories from women who have undergone this traumatic procedure at home, often alone, are heart-breaking,” Miss Williams went on. “We have heard from women like Sophie and Kirsty – the real women behind the statistics. We are continuing to fight against this awful policy being made permanent. However, on Tuesday 30 March, we will be taking a moment to remember the babies that have been lost, and the women who have been hurt. Please join us in lighting a candle on this day.”

Some of the tragic facts from the DIY abortion regime:
- 23,061 DIY abortions took place between April and June 2020 alone in England and Wales. (You can see more statistics on the Care for Women website)
- A freedom of information report revealed that ambulance calls for abortion complications rose by 54% during 2020 following the introduction of DIY abortions.
- The same report found that each month, 250 women using abortion pills at home will require hospital treatment to “surgically remove retained products of conception”, in other words to remove the remaining body parts of their unborn baby.
