Illegally prescribing controlled drugs has become a trend among abortionists
Abortion activists often claim that legalized abortion is necessary to protect women, but the existence of substandard care in the largely unregulated abortion industry says otherwise. The argument that women will seek out “back alley” abortions if it becomes illegal fails to hold water. Studies show that women are less likely to seek elective abortion when it is illegal or restricted. But possibly the most important oversight of this pro-abortion argument is that four decades of legal abortion reveals that it is not “safe” and legal abortion facilities are not well regulated. Reports available to the public show that when abortion facilities are inspected, horrific violations of health and safety standards have been found. Some abortion facilities go uninspected for years.
In addition to these substandard conditions, there is a trend of abortionists illegally prescribing controlled substances. While the nation grapples with an opioid epidemic that killed more than 130 people every day in opioid-related drug overdoses in 2016 and 2017, several prominent abortionists have been illegally selling prescriptions for narcotics or prescribing for friends under the table.
