We may never really know how dangerous the abortion pill is
At the very idea that Roe v. Wade — which overruled all state laws restricting abortion in 1973 — might eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court, the abortion industry and its friends have decided to push even harder to allow the abortion pill regimen, RU-486, to be available to women for at-home use (currently, medication abortions must be initiated under a doctor’s supervision). In California, lawmakers are also pushing for the pill to be made available on college campuses. At-home or on-campus use of these drugs is a dangerous idea, for various reasons. And yet, we probably will never truly know just how dangerous it is.
Reporting abortion complications is something people don’t often think about — and therefore, when the public hears from the abortion industry claiming medication abortion is “safe,” they may not even question: “Who’s doing the studies that claim this kind of abortion is safe? Who’s funding those studies?” and “Who’s reporting complications when things go wrong?” According to Planned Parenthood’s former research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, as of July 1, 2018, only 27 states require reporting of abortion complications — from any type of abortion. So who’s keeping track?
That’s the problem. Some states keep track, some don’t. Some abortion providers report, some don’t. And women (and their children) are ultimately the ones paying for it.
