Healthy Twins Survive Chemical Abortion After Planned Parenthood Failed to Disclose Second Child In Utero

A woman in Tennessee was recently able to give birth to healthy twins despite taking an abortion pill earlier this year due to her clinic's inability to correctly read an ultrasound. Furthermore, the clinic misinformed her about what they clearly did see to make her more likely to consider having an abortion that it would profit from. 

At seven weeks gestation, she had an ultrasound test during which the clinic failed to notice that she was carrying twins. When she asked if they could hear a heartbeat, she was told, “No, it’s too early to call it a heartbeat; it is just cardiac activity.” The phrase 'cardiac activity' was obviously used to dodge around the fact that there were beating hearts in each of her preborn children.

She likely wasn't given enough Mifeprex to kill either child according to Brent Boles, the physician who shared this story on social media earlier this month. After the mother was told there was nothing more Planned Parenthood would do, she contacted the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline and told her story to Brent Boles, who determined she didn't even require the Reversal treatment due to the low dosage she received. "I am pro-life and I know that a higher dose of Mifeprex is required to work successfully to abort a multiple gestation, because a twin pregnancy produces higher levels of progesterone."

While Planned Parenthood's incompetence saved the lives of two children, in this case, this story shows that clinics are not equipped with the qualifications to serve women with medical tasks as simple as ultrasounds, let alone the health of women and children. Click here to read more.
