The UK’s biggest abortion provider is taking legal action to make it easier for women to complete the procedure in their own homes.

The High Court challenge comes after talks between ministers and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) broke down.

BPAS chief executive Ann Furedi said the charity (where is the charity in this group?) could no longer “sit back” on the issue after a decade of “ebbing and flowing of enthusiasm” within government.

 In its action, BPAS is asking the High Court for an updated interpretation of the 1967 Abortion Act.

The Act stipulates that treatment for the termination of pregnancy must be carried out in a hospital or clinic. To protect the child in case it lives?

This means women wanting an early medical abortion before nine weeks’ gestation must go to a clinic twice to receive the tablets in two stages.

On the first visit, women receive one mifepristone tablet to swallow and are told to return to the clinic 24 to 48 hours later.

On this second occasion, they are given a second dose of four tablets of misoprostol, which can be taken in a variety of ways.

BPAS believes women should get this second dose, with clear instructions on how to take it at home, during the one visit.

It argues women suffer unnecessary anxiety about having an abortion on their way home from the clinic, especially those who have travelled long distances or have used public transport.

The charity says the current interpretation of the law is not in keeping with the intentions of Parliament when it passed the original Act, which was to ensure women got a safe service.

BPAS said it is common practice in other countries, including the US, France and Sweden, for women to take the second dose of tablets at home
