Abortion apologists push pill loved by criminals

doctor writing prescriptionAn abortion pill that is touted as progress for women’s access to abortion also creates a backdoor for criminals.

RU486, the chemical do-it-yourself-at-home abortion pill, is already known for serious complications and at least two dozen deaths. But abortion giant Planned Parenthood is using telemedicine to help the drug become more available than ever, allowing it to arrive by mail after an online consultation with a doctor.

Kirsten Hasler of Eagle Forum warns that evil people, such as sex traffickers and child molesters, can take advantage of the allowance because there is no accountability since women don’t visit the doctor’s office for a one-on-one consultation.

“There is no way of checking her for some kind of abuse,” Hasler says of a female patient. “Nor does she have an outlet of private space to be able to tell someone. So it is definitely an inhibitor for a woman's safety if she is stuck in human trafficking or is continuously abused by someone who is sexually assaulting her.”

RU486 is supposed to be limited through the first nine weeks of pregnancy, which means a sonogram is needed to determine the gestational age of the fetus. But the sent-by-mail abortion pill skirts around that important visit. 

The routine procedure also allows a doctor to check for health concerns, such as an ectopic pregnancy. Two of the two dozen deaths associated with the pills have been women with ectopic pregnancies.
