“Risking women’s lives to make a political point and a quick profit makes no sense, and we sadly anticipate horror stories when inevitably something goes wrong,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins.
WASHINGTON D.C. (10-18-18) –Responding to news that Women on Web’s founder Rebecca Gomperts has quietly launched a business in the U.S. to distribute life-ending, chemical abortion drugs by mail, Students for Life of America Kristan Hawkins made the following comments: “Just as our Students for Life of America team stood for women and unborn children in successfully opposing the distributionof those deadly drugs on California college and university campuses, we will stand for women soon to be victimized by this negligent business. Handing out deadly drugs through the mail is a disaster waiting to happen. We know that women have died using chemical abortion drugs, and that how far along a woman’s pregnancy is or where it is can be a life or death issue. Women later in pregnancy or women experiencing an ectopic pregnancy in particular are in great risk — two things that must be determined by examination and not by some online questionnaire.
“Even those pushing the drugs admit that they can fail, meaning that women can face infection and other complications if not examined, which is not possible in this on-line business model. Risking women’s lives to make a political point and a quick profit makes no sense, and we sadly anticipate horror stories when inevitably something goes wrong. Any effort to quietly distribute these dangerous drugs will be met with vocal opposition because the risks to women and children are so great.
“And for those engaged with the #MeToo movement consider that these dangerous drugs have also been used by abusers to end wanted pregnancy, something that this distribution model would make even easier. Women deserve better.”
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have lead to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the deaths of women. And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the preborn infant pass into a toilet.
