It is not possible to ascertain the number of similar abortions in Scotland as the data refer to the board of residence of the patient.
From Monday women will be able to arrange a medical abortion over the phone by calling Ultrasounds and blood tests will be organised and RU delivered to their door.
The service has been organised by the Tabbot Foundation, which has been working with lawyers, doctors and psychologists to ensure it is legal and patient care is paramount, according to Reproductive Choice Australia co-president Jenny Ejlak.
RU was legalised in Australia inbut there has been no great uptake in doctors applying for the licence to distribute it.
The foundation has put together a database of ultrasound services it will work with if a doctor refers a patient to them over the phone. Ejlak said it was important to have these service providers on board, as women had been known to be refused an ultrasound if the practitioner knew they were seeking a termination.
There will obviously be women for whom this is not suitable and they will need to go elsewhere.
In Queensland and NSW abortion is still a crime but may be carried out at the discretion of a doctor. Ejlak said the organisations had already braced for objections. Counselling will be available to women before and after the abortion through the service and a letter will be included in the kit posted to them that details the medication they are taking and can be presented to a doctor if any complications arise.
A hour hotline will be provided and a nurse will call the patient a day after. Fahey also had concerns about women being pressured into terminating their pregnancy but said family violence problems or pressure on the women could be detected at the ultrasound.The abortion debate most commonly relates to the "induced abortion" of an embryo or fetus at some point in a pregnancy, which is also how the term is used in a legal sense.
Some also use the term "elective abortion", which is used in relation to a claim to an unrestricted right of a woman to an abortion, whether or not she chooses to have one.
