    While the number of abortions in the United States has declined, a recent report shows that women seeking abortions are increasingly preferring medical abortions, rather than surgical ones. According to data from Planned Parenthood, in a report from Reuters, medical abortions – those by pill – made up 43 percent of all abortions in the U.S. in 2014, up from 35 percent in 2010. In some places, the demand for the abortion pill tripled after March, when the FDA expanded the use of the abortion pill (mifepristone or RU486 used together with misoprostol) to include pregnancies up to 10 weeks....

    — More pregnant girls and women are taking dangerous chemicals to terminate their pregnancies, according to a Reuters news service analysis. Reviewing Planned Parenthood’s 2014 reported data, Reuters found that chemical abortions are on the rise, making up 43 percent of the total number of abortions at the nation's largest abortion conglomerate. That percentage is up from 35 percent in 2010, even though abortions generally are on the decline. Danco Laboratories, the manufacturer of abortion drugs for the U.S. market, sought to expand its customer base and the Obama administration issued new federal guidelines last March that allowed the deadly...

    Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) sent a letter Monday, together with 73 of their colleagues to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf, expressing concern and seeking information regarding the recent loosening of regulation of the abortion-inducing drug Mifeprex or RU-486. The FDA announced a change in their guidelines for Mifeprex in March. The new guidelines reduce the dosage from 600 milligrams to 200 milligrams, decrease the number of required doctor’s visits from three to two, and allow the pill to be taken later in pregnancy, at 10 weeks of pregnancy from 7 weeks. “We...

    It’s not long before the do-it-yourself abortion pill Mifegymiso will be available in Canada. Expected to be prescribed as early as this summer, the combination of two medications, taken a day or two apart, usually at home, is considered an effective way to end the life of pre-born children up to 7 weeks old. A recent article in the National Post presents the regulations around the pill, and the response. Pro-abortion groups are angry about the need for this medication to be prescribed by a physician, as well as the fact that doctors may choose to have the patient ingest...

    FULL TITLE: FDA Relaxes Restrictions on Abortion Pill: What Happens to a Couple When their Home Becomes an Abortion Clinic? Under the cover of the uproar from Donald’s Trumps recent flip-flop comments on abortion, the New York Times reported about a much more serious concern for those who care about women and their unborn children: The Food and Drug Administration has relaxed the guidelines for taking a pill that induces abortion, reviving one of the most contentious issues of the abortion debate. The change allows women to use the drug further into pregnancy and with fewer visits to the doctor…The...

    Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, the Planned Parenthood affiliate covering Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska and eastern Oklahoma, has filed a lawsuit against a newly-enacted Arkansas law requiring abortion drugs be prescribed in accordance with federal Food and Drug Administration standards. The law, which is slated to go into effect Friday, requires Mifeprex medication abortions (mifepristone and misoprostol) to be administered at the dose the FDA recommends rather than the much lower dosage that has become common among abortion practice, and that women take misoprostol pills in-clinic rather than on their own. Planned Parenthood claims the FDA protocols are based on outdated...

    CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH, September 1, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- After years of decreases, the number of abortion businesses is increasing, at least by one, in Ohio. Just south of Cleveland, Cuyahoga Falls is the location for a new abortion center, led by abortionist David Burkons. Chemical abortions began last year; this summer, Burkons began surgical abortions. The facility was formerly called Capital Care Network, and Burkons did abortions there, until it was shut down by the Ohio Department of Health for many health and safety violations, and at the same time shut down by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency for drug...

    Republican presidential candidates Ben Carson and Donald Trump were criticized by pro-life activists this week after they waffled on their positions regarding abortion, research on aborted baby body parts and funding Planned Parenthood. After Carson indicated support for the abortion drug RU-486 in the case of rape or incest, Cavuto asked Carson, "At the point of conception do you see that as life Doctor?" "Certainly once the heart starts beating, certainly at that point," replied Carson. His seemingly contradictory admission may come as a surprise to pro-life activists across the country. Carson was a popular speaker at several state right...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business may talk a good game about being choice but another move by the abortion company makes it clear the only choice Planned Parenthood favors is abortion. The abortion corporation has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn a new Arizona law allowing women to know that they can change their minds about an abortion with the dangerous RU 486 abortion pill even after the abortion has started. New Arizona law SB 1318 requires that abortionists tell their patients that they could reverse the effects of the RU-486 abortion regimen if they change their mind during the...

    Dr. Karen Poehailos can reverse chemical chemical aboriton pill For people who claim to advocate for choice, informed consent is key. If abortion is to be legal, then logically there should be no objection to women being informed about all of their options, about the details of their baby’s development, and about the procedure they are about to undergo. Women should never be lied to or pressured into having an abortion, yet it happens with alarming regularity. So it makes sense for laws to be passed ensuring women are given accurate information — otherwise, how can a woman truly...

    Ron Weddington, one of the attorneys who drafted the brief for abortion rights in Roe V Wade, wrote a private letter to President-elect Bill Clinton arguing for the state to use abortion as population control. This letter was written in 1992: “[Y]ou can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I’m not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who...

    The RU 486 abortion pill has been responsible for killing dozens of people — including women in the United States — and injuring thousands more. But the Supreme Court refused to take a case today to protect women from it. Contrary to Food and Drug Administration protocols, Planned Parenthood distributes abortion-inducing drugs to women, oftentimes without requiring an in-person visit, up until two weeks beyond the prescribed 49 days from their last menstrual cycle. Furthermore, the organization sends women home to complete the chemical abortion themselves without a physician present. Planned Parenthood’s instructions have directly led to the deaths of...

    You’ll recall that in August the California Department of Managed Health Care issued a mandate requiring all insurance issuers to immediately add surgical and RU-486 abortion coverage to their plans, even those for nonprofit religious institutions and churches. This was a violation of the decade-old Weldon Amendment, one of several pro-life riders included in appropriations bills every year. The Weldon Amendment blocks government agencies receiving federal funds from discriminating against any health care entity for not covering abortions. The only recourse for victims seeking protection under the Weldon Amendment is to file a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights...

    Did you know that the effects of the abortion pill can be reversed for women and their babies? Many women have reported changing their minds about the termination of their preborn child after ingesting the first dose of the abortion pill. Thanks to pioneering research by Dr. George Delgado and his colleagues, the abortion reversal success rate is high and rising. In an older article, we explained how the chemical abortion process works. It’s important to understand the process in order to understand how it can be reversed: * RU-486 (the “abortion pill”) is actually two pills, taken approximately 48...

    According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, nearly half (2,314) of 4,638 abortions recorded in Iowa in 2012 were abortions involving RU 486. In an RU 486 pill-based abortion, pregnant women are given two drugs and directed to take them three days apart. The first, mifepristone, blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the growing baby, starving it of the nutrients it needs to survive. The second drug, the ulcer pill misoprostol, triggers uterine contractions to expel the dead baby. Women eventually complete the abortion and home and deliver a dead baby. Dr. Delgado and Dr. Thomas Hilgers found that women who receive high...

    The dangerous abortion pill RU 486 has killed dozens of women and injured thousands of women in the United States. Responding to that, the Oklahoma state legislature put limits on the drug and, after a legal battle, a court says it can take effect. The law required doctors who prescribe the abortion drug RU-486 to abide by FDA requirements that the agency provides for use of the drug. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the law last year as an “undue burden” on those seeking abortions, but the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review the case and has asked the...

    The Supreme Court was asked Monday to block parts of a Texas law that restricts access to abortion, an emergency request that could be just the first of several abortion-related cases to reach the court in the upcoming term. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit on Thursday allowed Texas to implement a law that restricts abortion providers and immediately shuttered all but seven of the state’s remaining clinics. On Monday, the women’s health facilities asked the high court to essentially undo that decision, allowing them to remain open as the legal fight proceeds. “Women’s constitutional rights and...

    It caused a bit of a stir in 1991 when three “pro-choice” feminists came out with a book warning of the dangers of the chemical abortifacient RU-486. “RU486: Misconception, Myths and Morals,” written by Renate Klein, a biologist and social scientist from Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, Janice Raymond, a professor of women’s studies from the University of Amherst (Massachusetts), and Lynette Dumble, a member of the University of Melbourne’s Department of Surgery, won awards and received some momentary coverage in the press. But ultimately, the pro-abortion establishment pushed back and plowed ahead, ignoring the warnings. Approved in the U.S.,...
