Buying Sketchy Abortion Pills Online? There’s a Chance They’re Laced with Fentanyl  

Caroline Wharton - 02 Jun 2023

Are you rightfully worried about Chemical Abortion Pills opening women up to the risk of injury, infertility, abuse, and death (to say nothing of their disastrous effects on the preborn)? If so, you might want to take a seat because despite enough danger already being associated with these life-ending drugs, there is yet another reason our society should be concerned: Fentanyl. Here’s what you need to know:  

The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) recently released  a public safety alert to warn Americans about buying prescription drugs online as many are laced with fentanyl. (USA Today notes that fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine.) According to the DEA Laboratory, six out of the ten laced drugs analyzed in 2022 contained a “potentially lethal dose” — and the agency noted that this had increased to 60% in comparison to 40% in 2021.  

DEA Administrator Anne Milgram said, “More than half of the fentanyl-laced fake prescription pills being trafficked in communities across the country now contain a potentially deadly dose of fentanyl. This marks a dramatic increase…in the number of pills that can kill.”  

Milgram stated that these pills are being mass-produced in Mexico — an interesting point we’ll come back to — and continued by warning, “Never take a pill from a friend. Never take a pill bought on social media. Just one pill is dangerous and one pill can kill.” 

Wise words. Yet such wisdom is exactly what the abortion lobby ignores in their devotion to Chemical Abortion Pills. Despite one of our nation’s law enforcement agencies putting out a public safety alert on recklessly taking drugs, abortion supporters like to pretend that doesn’t apply to pills used for abortive purposes; that doing a little online shady shopping won’t hurt anyone.   

However, if you listen to the DEA, it’s very clear that the abortion lobby’s suggestions for women seeking Chemical Abortion Pills are wholly unsafe — here’s why:  

Women in states where abortion is restricted are directed toward Mexican Chemical Abortion Cartels. 

Remember how Milgram said that the majority of the problematic drugs were being produced in Mexico? Abortion supporters are lauding Mexican cartels which send life-ending pills into the United States. In their most recent ‘Women of the Year’ article, TIME Magazine actually included the head of one such organization (known as Las Libres) named Verónica Cruz Sánchez. Cruz Sánchez’s network has reportedly sent pills to about 10,000 women — meaning she has potentially had a hand in the deaths of 10,000 preborn babies and who knows what has happened to those women?  

Abortion supporters use social media platforms to dole out Chemical Abortion drugs.  

The Washington Post reported on the “covert network” which “provides pills for thousands of abortions in U.S. post Roe” and is currently headquartered inside many back pockets via the mobile versions of social media. Reporter Caroline Kitchener’s story focused on one young woman’s interaction on the platform Reddit which led to her receiving Chemical Abortion Pills from an anonymous source — a method which the DEA condemns for safety reasons. 

We’re not in support of Chemical Abortion Pills (obviously) as they kill preborn life and harm mothers, but these drugs are clearly dangerous enough on their own without adding in the potential for a lethal dose of fentanyl. Regardless of your own personal opinion on the pills, no one should support women getting hurt, and everyone should denounce the abortion lobby when they support unsafe means of abortion which just fly in the face of commonsense.  

In the same way that you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet (and social media), you definitely shouldn’t be buying and consuming just anything, either.
