An inconvenient truth about abortion in Ireland
First, an incontestable statement: buying abortion pills online is dangerous and could have serious health consequences for women.
Women cannot be sure of what they are buying, the sellers are unregulated and the possibility of an adverse, potentially catastrophic, reaction after self-administering these drugs at home exists.
Yet, hundreds of Irish women are contacting at least one website every month seeking information about purchasing these pills online. Additionally, seizures of these drugs by customs officials have more than doubled in the first 10 months of this year.
