R v Ahmed – WLR Daily

R v Ahmed; [2010] WLR (D) 219

“The act of procuring the miscarriage of a woman’s child did not, by itself, amount to an offence known to English law. Where a defendant was charged with an offence of supplying or procuring any instrument or thing, knowing that it was intended to be unlawfully used or employed with intent to procure the miscarriage of a woman, the ‘thing’ supplied or procured had to be some sort of article or object and could not include a medical procedure. ‘Procure’ of the instrument or thing did not include the taking of possession of or use of an instrument or thing by a third person.”
