UK: Nurses want to perform abortions

'A recent randomised control trial published in the Lancet has shown that first trimester abortion using manual evacuation [the termination procedure often used on women up to 12 weeks] can be provided safely by appropriately trained nurses.'

Wait a minute. In Canada, OB\GYN's aren't even keen on midwives delivering babies (which isn't surgery) but British nurses want to perform potentially life-threatening surgery?


What happens if there is a complication? Is a nurse trained to deal with that?

Sounds more like politics than good health.
