MSI Reproductive Choices UK comment on launch of new World Health Organization Abortion Care Guideline

Media statement

London, 9th March 2022

Today, MSI Reproductive Choices UK welcomes the launch of WHO’s new Abortion Care Guideline.

The guidelines, which draw on the latest scientific and programmatic evidence, set out over 50 recommendations to expand access to quality abortion care, including endorsing the use of telemedicine for early medical abortion. 

MSI Reproductive Choices’ UK Medical Director, Jonathan Lord, said:

“We are delighted that the world’s leading health body has formally endorsed the use of telemedicine for early medical abortion, adding to the global body of clinical evidence that shows it is safe, compassionate and often preferred.

We urge the UK Government to urgently review their recent decision to remove this essential service and listen to the evidence and the voices of medical professionals and women who overwhelmingly want this service to stay.
