Abortion activists don’t spend all their time and energy trying to prevent pregnant women from learning the truth about what abortion really is. They’ve also been working to promote the widespread availability of abortion-inducting drugs by claiming they’re a safe alternative to early-term abortion with little-to-no complications or side effects. If you saw the movie “Unplanned,” you’ll remember that was what Abby Johnson was told, and she thought she was going to die from the painful side effects.
Well, in the interest of helping women make a truly informed choice about their reproductive health, here’s a story about a study recently published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. It found that abortions induced by drugs given to women up to the 10th week of pregnancy are far more dangerous than advertised, and have a complication rate four times higher than surgical abortion.
Here’s a quote from that article:
“According to the research, risks include ruptured ectopic pregnancies, hemorrhage, infection and retained pregnancy tissue, which require surgery in as many as one in 20 women. The FDA reports at least 24 women have died along with their unborn babies from the drugs, and thousands more have been injured.” Between 2000 and 2018, the FDA reports there have been 24 deaths, 97 ectopic pregnancies, 1,042 hospitalizations, 599 blood transfusions, and 412 infections (including 69 severe infections), with a total of 4,195 adverse events reported,” due to these drugs. And it could be much higher, since only 28 states require clinics to report such complications.
Meanwhile, the abortion industry claims they’re so safe, they dispense them remotely by webcam so that women don’t even have to see a doctor before taking them.
Tell me again about how these people are the guardians of women’s health.
