If you want to murder the unborn that’s fine for many as they believe the baby’s not human anyway! However, if you desire to save the unborn, well, that’s another story. ‘An NHS doctor has been banned from trying to save the babies of women who regret starting controversial ‘pills-by-post’ abortions introduced because of the pandemic.
Since GP surgeries and clinics closed in lockdown, women have been able to carry out terminations at home by swallowing two powerful pills over 48 hours.
But hospital consultant Dermot Kearney has treated dozens of women who changed their minds after taking the first pill by prescribing a sex hormone which he claims reverses its effects.
Dr Kearney, who is president of the Catholic Medical Association, says the anguished women turned to him in desperation after the NHS provided no solution to their predicament, and he believes his interventions may have saved dozens of babies.
He says that if taken within about 24 hours of the first pill, the hormone progesterone doubles the chance of the foetus surviving from 25 per cent if nothing is done, to 50 per cent.
But earlier this month, a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) panel ordered him to stop offering the treatment, which is not approved by health officials. The decision came after a complaint by abortion provider MSI Reproductive Choices, formerly known as Marie Stopes International.
It is understood MSI claimed he inappropriately prescribed progesterone to a patient for a use not backed by evidence, failed to present a balanced picture of its benefits and risks, and imposed his anti-abortion beliefs on her.
Dr Kearney now faces a full ‘fitness to practise’ hearing, likely to be held later this year, where he could be struck off. The Mail on Sunday has been told that he will vigorously contest the allegations and is being supported by The Christian Legal Centre.
Three women he helped are to give evidence in his defence. One of them, ‘Laura’, said: ‘Without Dr Kearney’s help, the alternative would have been horrific. I wouldn’t have been able to forgive myself. I’d be racked with guilt, with the shame of what I did, for the rest of my life. He was so supportive, compassionate and completely non-judgmental – and there was no mention of religion.’
Dr Kearney, a cardiologist and emergency physician at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Tyne and Wear, has been told by the MPTS that ‘he must not prescribe, administer or recommend progesterone for abortion reversal treatments’. Otherwise, he can practise as normal until the hearing.’https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9632581/NHS-consultant-banned-saving-babies-mothers-started-pills-post-abortiions.html?utm_source=Christian+Concern&utm_campaign=4f2588fc49-BN-20210601-Dermot&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9e164371ca-4f2588fc49-127681039
