Arkansas is the latest state to say no to the Planned Parenthood invention of telemed abortions, which use drugs proven to be risky.

In telemed abortions, a doctor can briefly chat with someone in a rural area many miles away via computer before punching a button dispensing RU486 or other abortion causing chemicals. Rose Mimms of Arkansas Right to Life tells OneNewsNow dispensing the drugs in this way is not safe.

“Without the direct supervision of a doctor, it basically leaves the woman on her own to experience the complications if there are any, and also to deal with the dead body of her unborn child,” she says.

Evidence has shown many risks associated with the drugs. Excessive bleeding, serious infections, heart problems, and incomplete abortions requiring a surgical abortion for completion are all on the list of complications sufficient to send women to emergency rooms. Even more serious, there is the risk of death. At least 14 so far in this country have died from using these abortion drugs. 

“And those 14 deaths occurred under the supervision of Planned Parenthood or an abortionist,” Mimms adds. “So, is it unconscionable to provide these drugs to women via the Internet for them to take on their own without any direct supervision or follow-up care from the doctor who prescribed them."

The effort to ban telemed or webcam abortions is being successfully fought on a state level. There has been no such success at the federal level.
