Mifepristone (abortion pill)A pro-life activist group says factual, non-biased information changes minds about the use of the abortion pill regimen.

Live Action commissioned the polling company, inc. to conduct the study primarily because the abortion industry is suing federal health organizations in order to circumvent rules on the use of the abortion pill regimen. Approximately 1,200 people, most of whom are registered voters, were asked how they felt regarding the abortion pill and whether their feelings changed after being given accurate medical information.

"Minds can be changed on the dangers of the abortion pill after viewing factual, non-biased information on how it works by starving a preborn child and expelling that child from the woman's body, as well as just the messaging around how developed the baby is," Life Action's Alison Centofante tells OneNewsNow about the findings.

At the beginning of the survey, 36 percent of the respondents identified as pro-life, while 44 percent said they were pro-choice. In total, 45 percent of respondents supported the abortion pill regimen remaining legal.

While current rules allow a chemical abortion up to ten weeks gestation, participants in the study were moved by how developed the child is at that point, "as well as the realization that the abortion pill procedure is very hard on a woman," Centofante continues. "It is essentially an at-home forced miscarriage alone in your bathroom, or wherever you are on your college campus."

In fact, at least 24 American women have died from aborting with the pill, and over 4,000 have been rushed to hospital emergency rooms because of serious complications. After being shown a video explaining how this particular procedure works, 54 percent of respondents said that removing FDA regulations made them less likely to support the abortion pill.

Also, the percentage of respondents who continued to support the abortion pill dropped to 39 percent, while the percentage opposed increased to 42 percent. When asked why they changed their minds, respondents said it was due to the information about prenatal development and realizing that the abortion pill works by killing a human life or a baby.

So when given a thorough and honest explanation of what the abortion pill does, many people who supported it changed their minds.
