It was when she was in the taxi home from the clinic, following a medical abortion, that Claudia Craig began to miscarry. “I can’t imagine what it would have been like if we had been stuck in traffic for just two minutes longer, or if, like many women, I couldn’t afford to take a taxi,” she wrote in a letter to health ministers earlier this year.
“I collapsed almost as soon as I got inside and started vomiting and miscarrying on the bathroom floor.”
By the end of 2018, women in England will no longer have to face the same experience, following the announcement that women will now be allowed to take their second abortion pill at home.
“I’m so relieved that our voices have finally been heard and that experiences like mine will be a thing of the past for English women,” Craig told HuffPost UK.
