“It is jarring to see the inclusion of a photo of a set of baby mannequins, paid for by an Ambulance Trust in the UK, designed to help staff when confronted with the horrendous situation of tiny babies being born alive after a failed abortion
An investigation has revealed that ambulance dispatches and 999 calls dealing with concerns about abortion pills have soared by 64% since NHS abortion pills by post were legalised in Britain in 2019 – a measure which was made permanent this week.
A government minister has confirmed that a temporary provision permitting at-home ‘DIY’ abortions during the Covid-19 pandemic will come to an end in England on the 30th of August. The decision has been described as a victory for the welfare of women by advocacy groups.
The Life Institute has called on the Irish government to heed the decision of the English Department of Health to reverse "at-home abortions" which were introduced during Covid restrictions in 2020 - which also happened in Ireland.
The Life Institute has said that the media is failing to question the obvious biases and flaws in a new study, which was funded and researched by abortion campaigners and abortionists, and which claims that using abortion pills without medical supervision is safe and effective.
The Life Institute has said that pro-abortion activists travelling the country looking to tout abortion pills are acting like drug pushers, and that their disregard for the lives of women and babies was callous, reckless and reprehensible. Spokeswoman Niamh Uí Bhriain said that senior medical experts had advised that taking abortion pills in an unsupervised setting could kill women, and the abortion bus activists clearly had a reckless disregard for women's lives. That they had no regard for the lives of vulnerable babies was "shocking but unsurprising" she said.
Despite huge advance media publicity, only journalists and rent-a-crowd abortion campaigners turned up to meet the abortion pill bus in Galway and Limerick. Pro-life protesters, who carried signs saying ‘abortion pills kill’ outnumbered the handful of pro-abortion extremists whose much-flaunted posturing as law-breakers turned out to be little more than a damp squib. In Limerick there were almost three times as many pro-life activists, while activists in Cork told the bus to ‘go home’ as it was ‘not welcome in Cork’.

The Life Institute has said that it is ‘deeply shocking’ to see that abortion activists who plan to make access to illegal abortion pills available on a bus touring the country appear to be playing ‘fast and loose’ with women’s lives. Today, Ruth Coppinger TD said that the abortion bus would ensure that women in Ireland could avail of the abortion pill by meeting the bus – but she admitted that no doctor would be present on the bus, and was dismissive of warnings from senior medical experts who warned that unsupervised use of the abortion pill could result in the death of the woman.
