ST PAUL, MN — The latest “fad” in the feminist movement is online access to chemical abortion. They are enabling women to “self-abort” without a visit to a doctors’ office, which is necessary to ensure safety. Project SANA (Self-managed Abortion Needs Assessment), under the guidance of Professor Abigail Aiken, decided to conduct a study on the “need” for self-managed abortions in the United States, specifically the desire for online access to the RU-486 chemical abortion pills.
According to online abortion drug seller Women on Web (WoW), the main reason for women wanting “mail-order” abortions was because of restrictive state laws. However, the study from Project SANA found that cost and privacy were the two main reasons mothers were seeking at-home toilet abortions. Randall O’Brannan Ph.D. with Live Action writes that, “Beyond the low percentage, the minimal difference between perceptions in ‘hostile’ versus ‘supportive’ states shows that the actual presence or absence of such laws in a given state isn’t that big a factor in pushing women into the arms of the online abortion merchants.”
The abortion pill might not be all it’s cracked up to be, though. Live Action explains that the pill was originally used by tyrannical governments for population control and patent rights were given to the pro-abortion Population Council in 1994. This council was, and still is, interested in both population control and eugenics, which raises questions about their motives for desiring the drug RU-486.
Making these pills available online, as Planned Parenthood and others are pushing to do, could prove to be fatal for women across the nation. The success rate of RU-486 is somewhere between 64% and 85% and for some women, they are forced to go through a follow-up surgical abortion because of the malfunctioning of the drug. The side effects of the abortion pill can be serious and would be fully un-monitored if the pills became “mail-order.” Often chemical abortions are accompanied by intense bleeding that can lead to hemorrhaging as well as nausea, intense pain, and vomiting; sometimes even severe enough to require a hospital stay.
The abortion industry doesn’t care about women; they care about profits. They are exploiting women and their children, lining their pockets with bloodstained money. Instead of mainstreaming abortion drugs, programs should be implemented to support women and their unborn babies. Abortion, not even the “at-home chemical” kind, is not the answer.
