MP calls for ‘Deliveroo-style’ morning after pill service

A group pushing to make the morning after pill available through a ‘Deliveroo-style’ delivery service has received the backing of a senior Tory MP.

Caroline Nokes MP said she would like to see services like The Lowdown’s bike delivery “commissioned by the NHS”.

The morning-after pill can cause early stage abortions and encourages reckless sexual behaviour.

‘Just Eat for contraception’

The pills are already available free of charge at GP surgeries and sexual health clinics across the UK.

But The Lowdown founder Alice Pelton claims the scheme is “all about making contraception less complicated”. She tweeted: “It’s like ‘Just Eat for contraception’”.

The service replaces the requirement to speak to a medical professional with a short online questionnaire.

Nokes, who backed the campaign, is the chair of the Women and Equalities Committee.

‘Trivialises sex’

The Christian Institute’s Deputy Director Ciarán Kelly said: “This scheme trivialises both sex and the sanctity of human life.”

Uncovering the truth

In this comprehensive but plain-speaking book John Ling sets out how the morning-after pill works and its wider social effects. Taking in evidence from science to philosophy, and from God’s law to British law, he argues that the morning-after pill demands a powerful Christian response.

When does human life begin? It is a fundamental and decisive question because your answer reveals your understanding of the nature and status of the human embryo. It also shapes your stance on the big bioethical issues of the day such as abortion, cloning and embryonic stem cell research. There are many voices sowing confusion, but the Bible is unmistakably clear that human life begins at conception. In this booklet, John Ling provides a wide-ranging explanation of biblical truth, the historical Christian perspective and evidence from modern science to support this position.
