    Home abortions: Have women’s reproductive rights in the UK changed forever?

    In the past year, a radical new approach to abortion has taken place in the UK. For the first time in history, 100,000 women have been able to have them in their own homes. This was brought about as part of the COVID-19 lockdown measures, TO encourage women to stay away from clinics in order to protect the NHS. But could this approach be here to stay?

    In this episode, host Katerina Vittozzi talks to Sky News correspondent Isabel Webster, about how telemedical abortions work, the positives, the risks and we hear from both sides of the debate.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.
