History of Chemical Abortions
Mifepristone, also known as RU-486 is the main drug used to carry out chemical abortions and it was developed in France in the 1980’s as a drug that would cause an abortion by provoking the expulsion of a baby in the womb. The drug was approved in many European nations in the 1990’s and by the FDA in the United States in the year 2000 after a relentless campaign from Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Population Council.
Taking advantage of the pandemic, the FDA approved the use of “telemedicine” to allow the abortion drug to be shipped to pregnant women who want to kill their children up to 13 weeks after conception. In December of 2021, what was at first an “emergency” measure, was made permanent by the Biden administration.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, Mifepristone accounted for 54% of the abortions in the United States in 2020. Surely that percentage has only increased since the FDA’s made the drug available through “telemedicine”.
How it Works
This is how the pro-abortion website safe2choose.org describes the effect of the drug on the pregnant woman and her baby. Note that the baby is referred to as a “product of expulsion” and also that women are encouraged to flush the baby down the toilet.
For women who are between 10-13 weeks, you will have symptoms of bleeding and cramping, however you may also recognize the product of expulsion when it passes. Usually this product of expulsion is mixed within blood and clot, and often goes unnoticed, but it is important to know that it is normal if you recognize it. Do not be alarmed, it can be disposed of wrapped in sanitary pads or flushed down the toilet.Safe2Choose.org
Besides being fatal to the developing baby in the womb, chemical abortions are so dangerous that the drug makers sought complete liability protection for themselves.
From 2000 to 2018 the FDA documented 26 deaths and over 4,000 serious medical complications caused by Mifepristone. But in 2018 the Obama administration ordered the FDA to stop recording adverse cases of the abortion-causing drug.
State Chemical Abortion Bans
It is evident that the protection of preborn children and their vulnerable mothers depends upon the prohibition of this drug as the lethal poison that it is.
Before the Dobbs decision, abortion proponents had successfully used the courts to prevent the enforcement of South Dakota’s Telemedicine abortion ban.
However, after Dobbs overruled Roe and Casey, Governor Noem proudly announced that the Telemedicine ban would be enforced along with the state’s complete surgical abortion ban.
Biden’s Abortion Pill Plan for America
Shortly after the Dobbs decision the Biden administration through the Department of Health and Human Services announced their “action plan” to promote telemedicine abortion in states where surgical abortions are not allowed.
The New Roe v Wade
While states work to enforce their pro-life laws, those states that do not yet have bans on telemedicine abortions should immediately pass legislation imposing steep penalties on those individuals and companies that traffic in poisons intended to kill unborn children.
As the map from the pro-abortion Kaiser Family Foundation below shows, numerous states do not have any restrictions on telemedicine abortions and others only have bans that require the physical presence of an abortionist or other “physician” to permit the use of the lethal poison. In some of those states where only physical presence is required, the law should immediately be amended to prohibit telemedicine abortions altogether, or as in the case of South Dakota, the law should be implemented along with a complete abortion ban that includes telemedicine abortions.
American ProLifers cannot rest in our laurels after the Dobbs victory but must seal the protection of pregnant women and the children in their womb by countering the Biden administration’s evil plan to push chemical abortions through the mail into states that have banned surgical abortions.
