Planned Parenthood Started Promoting Abortion Pills Past FDA-Approved Limit

Planned Parenthood's website was recently changed to promote the use of abortion pills up to the 11th week of pregnancy. The FDA only approves the use of the abortion pill regimen up to the 10th week of pregnancy.

A page on the Planned Parenthood website includes a section titled, "How effective is the abortion pill?" which lists how likely the abortion pill regiment is to complete an abortion during different weeks of pregnancy. Live Action News pointed out that this section recently added another week to this list.

The website now says, "For people who are 10-11 weeks pregnant, it works about 87 out of 100 times. If you're given an extra dose of medicine, it works about 98 out of 100 times."

This also comes when Planned Parenthood has begun instituting a "no-test policy" in which clinics simply use a pregnant woman's best guess at when their pregnancy began to make decisions on how to abort the child. If an abortion process goes wrong because Planned Parenthood used an incorrect gestational age in their decision-making process, a woman could experience medical problems including infection.
