Did you know that abortion drugs — Mifeprex or Mifepristone, originally known or RU486, a/k/a “the morning-after pill” — can kill you? Dozens of women have reportedly died as a result of complications from using Mifepristone, but this is a minor “side effect” compared to destroying the lives of some 2 million unborn children, which is what the drug is intended to do. Feminists hate babies and want to kill babies, and if a few women occasionally die in the process? Never mind. Feminists don’t care.
Feminism is a death cult, and the abortion industry donates millions to the Democrat Party, which means that the Obama administration does whatever Planned Parenthood tells them to do. The poweful influence of the abortion lobby was demonstrated once again this week:
Because of the high failure rate and the risks involved with RU-486 in later pregnancies, the FDA limited approval for use only in the first 49 days from the start of a woman’s last menstrual period. Planned Parenthood, by its own admission, ignores this limitation.
Now, the Food and Drug Administration announced on Wednesday, that it had given into to Planned Parenthood’s demands and altered the approved use of Mifeprex, (also known as Mifepristone or RU486), to come in line with off-label protocols used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The FDA has announced that it is extending the allowed time period for use of the abortion drug to 70 days.
But, according to the clinical trial submitted to the FDA for approval, the RU-486 regimen fails in 1 out of 12 women with pregnancies less than or equal to 49 days. Those failures, however, increase to 1 out of every 6 women with pregnancies just one week advanced (50-56 days), and further still to nearly 1 out of every 4 pregnancies at 57-63 days gestational age. When using RU-486, 1 out of 100 women with pregnancies less than or equal to 49 days will require emergency surgery; however, this number increases dramatically to 1 out of every 11 women with pregnancies of 57-63 days gestational age.
A spokesman for a leading pro-life group says this FDA change will cause more abortions with the abortion drugs and more failures that kill or injure women.
“The abortion pill is a huge cash cow for the Abortion Cartel, but the process of abortion using the abortion pill cocktail of two drugs, Mifeprex and Cytotec, is long, painful, bloody, and unpredictable for women and deadly for pre-born children,” Troy Newman of Operation Rescue told LifeNews.com. . . .
Women developing infections from usage of the RU 486 abortion drug experienced endometritis (involving the lining of the womb), pelvic inflammatory disease (involving the nearby reproductive organs such as the fallopian tubes or ovaries), and pelvic infections with sepsis (a serious systemic infection that has spread beyond the reproductive organs).
