Dermot Kearney

Dr Dermot Kearney was blocked from providing emergency life-saving treatment to unborn babies for women who regret taking the abortion pill.


Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Dr Dermot Kearney, former President of the Catholic Medical Association (UK), was challenging a ruling that prohibited him from providing life-saving treatment to unborn babies after their mothers regretted taking the first abortion pill, Mifepristone.

Several women who received help from Dermot spoke out, testifying to the care he gave them, in many instances resulting in the birth of a healthy baby.

Thankfully, just before the case was due to go to the High Court, the General Medical Council (GMC) reversed the ban against him, after concluding that there was no case to answer.

Dr Kearney commented: “I am relieved and delighted to have been exonerated. I have been the victim of a coordinated campaign by senior figures in the abortion industry who have been determined to prevent women in urgent need from accessing abortion reversal treatment.

“The whole investigation and the untruths about abortion reversal reported in the media have taken a toll on me and my family. The truth about abortion reversal treatment must now be told and medical professionals who are able and willing to support women with the treatment should be allowed to do so without fear.

“My hope is that woman across the UK will now be told by medical regulators and abortion providers that abortion reversal treatment is safe, that it is available, and that success is possible if they regret their decision to have an abortion and choose to seek help.”
