Mifepristone (abortion pill)An undercover probe suggests women seeking a chemical abortion at a New Mexico clinic could be harmed or killed.

Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico called the facility, Hilltop Women's Reproductive Clinic in Santa Teresa (near El Paso, TX), posing as a potential customer. Shaver asked the following questions and got this response:

Shaver: "I was wondering – are you guys able to detect like an ectopic pregnancy if I came in for a procedure there?"

Clinic worker: "I'm not sure, ma'am."

Shaver: "Do you know if your sonogram is able to detect or could you maybe ask someone, one of the nurses or someone?"

Clinic worker: "We don't do the vaginal sonogram. The vaginal sonogram would detect if it's ectopic, so I recommend you go with someone that do a vaginal sonogram."

The Food and Drug Administration requires that abortion clinics offering abortion chemicals be able to diagnose ectopic pregnancies, the reason being that the woman could find herself hospitalized with dangerous consequences or she could die.

According to federal data, at least 24 American women have died from consequences of chemical abortions – and two of those were ectopic pregnancies. There are over 4,000 reports of serious side effects requiring hospitalization.

Abortion Free New Mexico this week filed a complaint with the FDA against the abortionist, Franz Theard, who allegedly is violating the agency's requirements for diagnosing ectopic pregnancies.
