Calls for Public Inquiry over Primodos Pregnancy Test Drug

Sky News investigation exposed Primodos pregnancy drug cover-up

March 2017 : MPs have welcomed a Sky investigation, which revealed how hormone pregnancy tests may have caused malformations and even deaths.

Around 1.5 million women in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s took Primodos in the early stages of pregnancy. Some say their pregnancies resulted in miscarriage or birth defects.

Sky News’ hour-long documentary Primodos: The Secret Drug Scandal is presented by senior political correspondent Jason Farrell, who has been investigating it for six years.

Sky News revealed how documents were destroyed and information withheld about a drug that may have deformed and killed babies in the womb.
