The abortion pillPlanned Parenthood has rolled out a relentless PR campaign that says the Abortion Pill is good.

Iowa Right to Life presents the dirty little secrets about the Abortion Pill, aka RU-486. This comes from a fact sheet they have prepared for women contemplating ending their pregnancy in this way.

Dirty Little Secret #1: Abortion pill abortions are bloodier and take longer. Women are first given three RU-486 pils, also known as mifepristone or “Mifeprex,” and then a few days later, instructed to take a second drug, misoprostal, which causes the baby to be aborted.

Planned Parenthood advertises them as “more natural,” but the truth is, RU-486/Medication Abortions take longer and are bloodier than a surgical abortion.

Dirty Little Secret #2: Planned Parenthood manipulates the dosage to pad their profits. Planned Parenthood gives women a single RU-486 pill, instead of three recommended by the FDA, then increases the dosage of the less expensive prostaglandin, Misoprostol. This means more money for Planned Parehtnood, and more danger for women.

Planned Parenthood also cuts back the number of appointments that the FDA advises for medication abortions from three to two, which aslo increases Planned Parenthood’s profits even more by reducing office expenses.

Dirty Little Secret #3: You are left to deal with the dead baby at home ALONE. Women who have RU-486/Medication Abortions often see the body of the baby.

If you still have parts of the baby in you after an RU-486 abortion, you have to return to Planned Parenthood for a surgical abortion.

Dirty LIttle Secret #4: If something goes wrong, Planned Parenthood will blame YOU. In a 2007 court case in Nebraska, a Planned Paernthood abortionist punctured the uterus of a woman, who nearly bled to death. Planned Parenthood’s attorney said the victim was “well aware of the riskes.” The abortionist, Dr. Meryl Severson, practices in Iowa — he is one of Planned Parenthood’s medical directors.

    Especially during the first few days following unprotected sex, a woman should be able to abort the fetus. It is wrong to use force, including the force of law and government, to prohibit a mother from aborting from her body a fetus that is only a few days old.

    There does come a time when the fetus becomes a baby to be protected, but that is not during the first month or two. It is when the baby becomes viable – that is, when the baby can be delivered and survive using current technology.

    If we require the mother to carry the baby until birth, then we must be willing to pay the cost of the pregnancy and birth and life of that baby. The mother should only be required to take reasonable care when removing the baby from her body. She should not be legally required to care for or sustain the baby unless she voluntarily agrees to do so.

      Fact: At the moment of conception, ALL of the genetic material is present that WILL eventually form a viable, functional and fully realized human adult. To decide that human rights and protection should be given at some arbitrary point in his or her development is completely illogical.

        I agree. I think where Kurt and I diverge is on the this critical tipping point: human rights isn’t (and shouldn’t) be contingent on viability.

    I am pro-life meaning I am against abortion. I believe that abortion is a deadly sin, you’re killing an innocent life which is a gift from God. Lucky those women who can become mothers, they should not waste their opportunity to become a parent. There are many women who want to have a baby but cannot be given a chance. Sex is not just only sex, it holds big responsibility. Do it safely if you’re not ready to become a parent.

    We have our own opinions. But for me, I am pro-choice or pro-abortion. You cannot force a woman who is not ready to take that big responsibility. Considering that she’s not ready for parenthood, how can she provide the needs of her baby if she will continue the pregnancy? Will she just let her baby suffer?
    The debate of when life begins will just continue on and on, leaving us with no definite answers. By the way, if I have to choose between surgical or medical abortion, I would choose the surgical one.

      Adoption is the solution for women not ready for parenthood. The psychic damage can be shattering to these women who choose to end the life of their baby via abortion. We have erected a sprawling social safety net to support out-of-wedlock moms. Abortion is never the solution because it kills an innocent human life.

    If a woman is not ready to be a mother yet, then she or both should be responsible for their actions. They are all grown man and woman, and as adults, I think they possess rational thinking. Being not ready is not a reason for a woman to abort an innocent child. Just think, what if you discovered that you’re mother once tried to abort you just because she’s not ready for you?
