Midwives can take leading role in abortions

Midwives and nurses can take the “main role” in performing abortions, new Government guidelines state.

Under previous guidelines, the health workers could undertake “certain actions” in helping to terminate unwanted pregnancies.

However the new rules go further, stating that a “nurse or midwife may administer the drugs used for medical abortions”. A change which has been condemned by MPs and anti-abortion campaigners.


If they did that wouldn’t they be putting themselves out of a job? Their traditional job, anyway.
