Catholic doctor to challenge abortion pill reversal ban at UK High Court (UK)

A consultant cardiologist and past president of the Catholic Medical Association (UK), Dr Kearney, is currently prohibited from providing abortion pill reversal (APR). A tribunal ruled that Dr Kearney is no longer allowed to provide treatment to women who regret taking medication to abort their unborn baby. This interim order was put in place on January 2022 and will be reviewed at the Royal Courts of Justice on 24 February 2022. Lawyers will argue that the prohibition should be reversed. Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, states “we have seen many women immediately regret taking the first abortion pill. Dr. Kearney offers the possibility of saving the pregnancy when this happens. He should have the freedom to do it”.
