telemedicineOhio is taking action to help women better deal with or altogether avoid the complications they may suffer from chemical abortions.

Governor Mike DeWine (R) has signed into law Senate Bill 260, a measure that bans "telemed" abortions – procedures where a doctor communicates from perhaps miles away and then dispenses to the patient the chemicals that will end her pregnancy.

Allie Frazier of Ohio Right to Life says testimony has revealed that Planned Parenthood had been doing telemed abortions in the state for several years.

"Telemed abortions are not safe, either for the unborn child whose life is tragically taken during a chemical abortion or for the woman who is left to deal with the harrowing experience of a telemedicine abortion on her own, alone, potentially hours away from the doctor who prescribes the drugs," Frazier comments.

That is especially the case for women in rural areas, as the pro-lifer insists that women who take the drugs need ready access to medical care.

"Chemical abortions are very dangerous," she asserts. "Since the chemical abortion regimen was first introduced in the U.S. in the year 2000, 24 women have died from chemical abortions, and thousands have had intense and life-threatening complications."

Most of those suffered excessive bleeding, infections, or incomplete abortions, which had to be completed through a surgical abortion. 4,200 such incidents have been reported, and at least 1,000 of those required hospitalization.
