The Abortion Pill

Some English doctors want women to be allowed to pop a few pills to have their own abortion at home. They say the use of these pills are find and dandy up to nine weeks into a pregnancy.

I know very little about the medical aspects of this, but they say that a couple of pills ends an early pregnancy ‘safely’. We’ll leave on one side the obvious question of safe for whom? Obviously not safe for the unborn child.

What I would really like to know is what happens if the pregnancy is later than nine weeks? Do the pills still work? What do they do to the unborn child? What do they do to the woman’s health? People can’t buy the pills over the counter, but what happens when ‘the abortion pill’ gets out there on the open market like Viagra? Will there be mock ups of this powerful drug available under the counter? Will you have desperate women or teenage girls taking the pills at later stages of pregnancy? What happens then?

I can’t believe the vulgar, naive idiocy of these people. Why aren’t these obvious questions being asked?

    I know a girl of 18 who took this pill after a foolish encounter with a drug addict. Her mother thought it the best course of action. It is a very strong pill and frightened both of them a great deal. The mother was shocked that it was allowed for home use after seeing what her daughter went through. This is not like viagra. A miscarriage is induced and it is quite traumatic. Women can bleed to death.I know a woman who sought to end her pregnancy with it. She took two doses as the first did not work. The child survived and went to full term. Her child suffers from mental retardation. While it was not difinitively proved that this pill caused this effect, her other child is fine and there is no history in the family of retardation. All the evidence suggests this is a very serious pill made available by a state without care or concern for the wellbeing of women and children.

  • Father,I blogged about my own experience taking RU-486, the abortion drug, last week. have made it one of my missions in life to educate people about the reality of it. It is so much different than the “quick and easy fix” that it is advertised to be.God bless you and your family,the Mom

    What is the difference between this pill and a coat hanger?

  • Anon,Nothing. Both kill your child, and both can leave you to bleed to death on your bathroom floor.Love,the Mom

    Frankly, I think some doctors may be motivated to promote pills like this because they rather have the mother abort the child herself than have to kill the child themselves.
