Briefings & Reports

In December 2020, Carrie Purcell, Karen Maxwell and colleagues at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow, submitted a response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on future arrangements for early medical abortion at home. The consultation sought views on whether temporary arrangements to ensure abortion access during the Covid-19 pandemic should be made permanent. The response draws on evidence from 8 years of research on abortion in Scotland, including the studies brought together for secondary analysis in the SASS project.
