Planned Parenthood fights requirement of pelvic exam prior to a chemical abortion

Planned Parenthood fights requirement of pelvic exam prior to a chemical abortion
It has been previously written about women leaving states with protective abortion laws to go to Illinois where abortions are easy to come by, there is no requirement that women reflect on their decision, and the industry is essentially unregulated.

But here’s a new low, even by Planned Parenthood’s standards.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, in a story that ran Tuesday, reported that “Enforcement of a rule requiring women to have a pelvic exam before receiving a pill abortion is sending Missouri’s Planned Parenthood patients to Illinois.”

Reporter Jack Suntrup channeled the response of the abortion industry captured by Dr. David Eisenberg, medical director at Planned Parenthood in the Central West End, who told Suntrup that he informs women they can go to Illinois—which “100%” do.

Suntrup wrote that the Department of Health and Senior Services’ [DHSS] requirement “puts the state at odds with guidance from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, or ACOG, which does not recommend requiring pelvic exams prior to medication abortions. The group says pelvic exams are medically unnecessary prior to medication abortions in most cases.”
