In the U.K., government advisers have deemed the "DIY abortion" safe for in-home use. Currently, the pill-induced miscarriage, triggered by a combination of the drugs mifepristone and misoprostol, is only available in British hospitals. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists told Parliament that, "There is an increasing body of evidence from both developed and developing countries that home use of mifepristone/misoprostol is safe, effective and acceptable to many women." Who wants to bet that the DIY abortion will never happen in the U.S.? [Daily Mail]

UPDATE: Apparently it IS availablein the good ol' U.S of A. According to Planned Parenthood, "much of the process (of taking the miscarriage-inducing pills mifepristone and misoprostol) can take place in the privacy of woman's home." Huzzah! Thanks to feministing for pointing out our error.
