Ambulances called 466 times at London independent abortion clinics

The national prolife charity Life is shocked at the revelation that ambulances were called a total of 466 times at London abortion clinics over the last year.

 The figure was released as part of a Freedom of Information request submitted to the London Ambulance Service by a member of the public. The service said there were 313 incidents at BPAS clinics and 153 at Marie Stopes clinics in London between October 1 2016 and October 31 2017.

Life’s Director of Education Anne Scanlan said “The figure is absolutely staggering. It means that there were almost 500 complications at BPAS and Marie Stopes clinics in just over one year in London alone. That means an ambulance is called to abortion clinics in London every day. What would be the national figure?  We also have to wonder whether these incidents have all been reported to the Care Quality Commission.

It does suggest that the CQC needs to step up its monitoring and assessment of these abortion clinics in order to ensure the health and welfare of vulnerable women are not being put at risk. This cannot and should not continue while the Government and the rest of society stand idly by.

Abortion clinics nationally have been guilty of health and safety breaches over the last few years and there is need for immediate intervention to protect women from them instead of loosening the laws as is being demanded by the abortion lobby.  Women need greater support to continue with their pregnancy, not the exploitation of their crisis pregnancy by the abortion industry.”

    There's a big difference between 466 and 778. Can the disparity in these figures be explained by the London Ambulance Service and/or BPAS please ?

  2. bernard j cronin says:

    Can you find out how many surgeries called for an ambulance and how long did the patient have to wait before seeing a doctor please? Furthermore can it be determined the result of each call, a procedure to terminate pregnancy perhaps?

    best wishes and keep up the good work.

  3. Mark Bhagwandin says:

    The London Ambulance Service contacted us after this press release was sent to let us know that BPAS have contacted them, saying that the figures BPAS provided were incorrect due to human error. It said the correct number of calls was 466 not 778 and that the addresses of the BPAS and Marie Stopes abortion clinics could also have included GP surgeries.
