Growing number of confiscation of Abortion pills by the Irish Government

an investigation shows that the Irish government has stepped up its game in intercepting abortion pills, which could result in devastating consequence for women.
DUBLIN, Ga. - Dec. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- An increasing number of Irish regulators are seizing abortion pills shipped into the country through different means, denying thousands of women the basic access to reproductive care. Reports show that a total amount of 3,467 medication packages, labeled as 'Mifepristone' and 'Misoprostol', were intercepted by the provincial authorities between the years 2011 to 2015. These two drugs are commonly used to carry out a termination a pregnancy that is within 10 weeks of gestation. These two pills are also urgently needed by Irish women as due to their absence, many women are forced to continue unwanted pregnancies as a direct result of confiscation.

As per a report, the number of confiscation has increased in the recent five years, increasing by 36% from 2011 to 2015. Ireland is one of the few countries among its neighbors that deny its female citizens the right to abort (except if the women's life is endangered). Despite the United Nation's ruling that women's right to buy abortion pills and services is her basic human right, plus World Health Organization adding Mifepristone and Misoprostol in their 'essential medicines' list, abortion continues to remain illegal in the country.

Consequences of stringent Irish policy

As a direct result of the above, the Irish Government has continued with its policy of intercepting abortive medications.  Many establishments who provide abortion pills online have also stopped shipping the medication to the country. Two of these major services confirmed that they no longer post medicines there since the authorities seize the medication packages. Even so, these services are closely watching the recent pro-choice movement with interest and are hoping that it will bring women in Ireland more autonomy over their reproductive choice.

Despite the misinformation provided by some, the two tablets, Mifepristone and Misoprostol are actually tested to be safe since more than two decades, when bought from a genuine source and administered correctly. Some genuine suppliers continue to send legit abortive medication to Ireland, but there is no guarantee that fake medicines could be sold to desperate women seeking solution through illegal means. These results into women forced to travel internationally to undergo expensive and emotionally exhausting surgery.

Notwithstanding the number of seizures and zealousness of Irish customs, a representative of the provincial health care body confirmed that it doesn't even chemically test the intercepted medicines. Upon query on how the HPRA (Health products regulatory authority) could accurately classify the confiscated drugs, the representative stated that the establishment went by the medication's labeling, and were not sent to the laboratories to test their composition.

Rise in use of 'mifepristone'

There is a very heavy cost of this strict seizure policy. Every seized medication equals to a desperate pregnant women who has decided to buy abortion pills online as a last solution. According to a healthcare research, women are also moving on from misoprostol-only solutions to both Mifepristone and Misoprostol ( MTP Kits) as the combination is medically proved to be successful than any other medications.

As per a pro-choice activist, increasing number of confiscated packages show two sets of MTP kits of two Mifepristone and eight Misoprostol (more than the required amount) which could mean that the women would have bought extra pills, incase if the original do not work or may be for another person.
